Quantitative comparisons, including some 120,000 statistics, focus on over 400 of the world's ethnic groups and the impact each has upon such factors as economic development, demographic behavior, and general business policies.
This work is an examination of borderless markets where national boundaries are no longer the relevant criteria in making international marketing, economic planning, and business decisions. Understanding nonpolitical borders is especially important for products and industries that are culture bound and those that require local adaptation. Ethnic culture is one critical factor that affects economic development, demographic behavior, and general business policies around the world. Over 120,000 statistics are provided for over 400 ethnic groups covering a number of social, economic, and business variables. A significant review of literature is also included.

Reviews Although the volumes are valuable as a set, each volume is also complete in itself... The set is very useful as a starting point for economists, social scientists, and those interested in cross-cultural studies. It is recommended for academic libraries.—Choice
