EMSI’s data, modeling, and consulting services played a key role in a report released today by Bruce Corrie, professor of economics and director of the Strategic Business Design Institute at Concordia University in St. Paul, Minnesota.

The report, titled “Ethnic Capital and Minnesota’s Future: Mexican Americans in Minnesota,”  examines the consumer spending power, entrepreneurial capital, productive capital, cultural capital, and other ways that Mexican-Americans benefit the Minnesota economy. The report finds that Mexican-Americans have consumer power of $1 billion, pay $283 million in personal taxes, and have large impacts on the state’s industries and labor market.
