Group Economics can be defined as one group of people who have a common economic interest. That group agrees to actively and consciously pursue that economic interest together to create a sustainable and secure economy for themselves.
5 Facets of Black Group Economics
1.) Businesses: Provide black owned and run businesses (existing or new) for the Black consumer to purchase from. There must also be plans to replace those businesses owned by people outside of the Black Community with equal or better quality options.
2.) Hiring from Group: Business owners must hire from the local community.
3.) Accountability & Quality: The businesses must be of the highest quality and be willing to be held accountable by Black patrons for their services and/or products.
4.) Marketing: Black businesses must market themselves actively to the Black community to make sure their services & products are known.
5.) Consumer Loyalty: The community of Black consumers must be committed to patronizing great black businesses. Black consumers must also be willing to respectfully hold black businesses accountable to maintain their high standards of products and service.
