The Cuba poll was part of a monthly survey by BEPI
of consumer optimism among Hispanics, which rose to a new high of 100.
This means Hispanics with more discretionary income will be the driving consumer force this Holiday shopping season," said Monica Escaleras, director of the FAU BEPI
Optimism about the country during the next five years has increased each month since the BEPI began, from 36 percent in August, to 41 percent in September and finishing at 45 percent in October.
A possible explanation for the optimistic outlook of the economy could be that Hispanic consumers believe a stronger labor market will improve their situation," said Monica Escaleras, director of FAU BEPI.
Possible explanations for the gender difference in healthcare coverage and affordability can be that women on average have lower incomes than men so they have a harder time paying for health care costs," said Monica Escaleras, director of FAU BEPI
The FAU BEPI
