Are you taking advantage of the crisis to increase your share of the Hispanic market?
by Claudia Ahavyah Goffan
Hispanics are more resistant to recessions and economic crisis. They have been exposed to them already.
In 1998 and 1999, the majority of Latin American countries suffered a severe economic recession that drove corporations into insolvency and forced many to close down. In some cases, whole countries bordered bankruptcy. These recessions also caused the deterioration and sometimes the fall of the banking system and massive lay-offs that increased the existing unemployment levels and caused the further loss of purchasing power among large sectors of the population.

If we add the fact that most U.S. Hispanics are less prone to running large credit cards tabs, invest heavily in the stock market and more price conscious – another effect of going through recessions, high inflation-levels and high unemployment rates paired to the lack of available credit in most Latin American countries – makes them more resilient to these tough financial times.
