Employment in Black and white: Racial disparities in America
THE REAL ECONOMY |
Economic fallout from the novel coronavirus pandemic and the civil unrest in the weeks following the tragic death of George Floyd has placed an uneasy spotlight on the disparity in economic opportunities among U.S. ethnic groups—in particular, the wide income gap between white and Black Americans.

One must look at time-worn systemic patterns to get a handle on the inherent disparities of race.
In this issue of The Real Economy, we examine racial disparities in America. In addition, we spotlight what key traits can lead to success in the food and beverage industry, and we explore digital transformation trends in the middle market. Download the full issue.
