State of the Black Economy: What’s In It For You?
Slow economic growth is having a disproportionate effect on minorities
Headlines have been grim over the last month:
The U.S. poverty rate is rising to levels unseen for decades. Homeowners are losing their property to unpaid property tax bills. The extension of the middle class tax cuts is being held hostage by House Republicans. Financial security and credit worthiness has been nearly erased for a generation of minorities. Our businesses are struggling...
You get the idea. The state of the economy, more specifically the economic realities of African Americans, teeters on sub-par economic growth and a political stalemate.
Just how disproportionately the economic downturn has affected the black community needs to be better understood. Loop 21 launched the State of the Black Economy survey to give you a voice, as we attempt to better serve you.
