Buying power

The Louisiana Weekly, in an article about the upswing in minority buying power during the recession, quoted Jeff Humphreys, director of the Selig Center for Economic Growth in the Terry College of Business.

“Despite the recession, the underlying growth trends for Hispanics and Asians in the U.S. are still very strong,” said Humphreys. “Minorities have a lot of economic clout, and these groups in particular are experiencing growth in buying power that greatly exceeds that of the general population.”
