How much could the economy benefit from racial inclusion?
This research brief by PolicyLink and PERE estimates the economic boost of racial inclusion for the largest 150 regions, all 50 states, and the nation.
We found that the national economy stands to grow $2.1 trillion every year from racial equity, and that every region in the country would gain millions per year – from $287 million in Springfield, Missouri (the lowest potential gain) to $510 billion in Los Angeles (the highest).
