Ida Byrd-Hill highlights Corporations Should INVEST in Black America – the 12th Largest Nation

Black America earns and spends 1.3 trillion dollars annually, making it the 12th Largest Nation in the World. Its women, according to a 2016 report by the  National Center for Educational Statistics, are the most educated population in America.

Ida Byrd-Hill believes Companies should be rushing to locate, trade and invest in this SUPER POWER NATION – Black America.

Despite their economic power as a super power nation, Black America is invisible as employees in the digital revolution.

In her newest book, Invisible Talent Market, a Diversity & Inclusion guide, utilizing economic history of Blacks, Ida postulates that grooming Blacks with digital business skills is a viable strategy to reduce America’s talent shortage, without outsourcing and visas, as Blacks satisfied the talent shortages of the Agricultural and Industrial Revolutions.

To continually fuel Black America’s consumer spending and hence America’s economy tech companies need to invest or otherwise Black America will need to divest, like it did with Uber.
