Buying power

The African American community represents a wealth of over $400 billion dollars in the consumer market. Globally this figure exceeds $1 trillion dollars. However, true wealth must include entrepreneurs as well as consumers. One contributing factor for the increase in African American buying power is the successful increase of business start-ups and expansions by African American entrepreneurs.

Buying power is defined as the total personal income an individual has available after taxes for spending on virtually everything that they buy. However, it is not used as a measurement of wealth. To increase wealth in the African American communities, African American entrepreneurs can and do inspire more African Americans to adopt an entrepreneurial mindset. From the fourth quarter of 2007 through fourth quarter of 2009, the total number of self-employed Blacks increased 5.7 percent.
