Abstract: More than 40% of the U.S. are diverse, non-white Americans. The combined buying power of African-Americans, Asians and Native Americans was an estimated $2.2 trillion in 2016, a 138 percent gain since 2000. In comparison the buying power of whites increased by 79 percent, and Hispanic buying power is bigger than the economies of all but 14 countries in the world.
