I just heard about Social Compact, a consulting company, on NPR marketplace. They produce market justification studies for corporate clients. They examine the "hidden" spending power of inner city and minority neighborhoods. The studies are paid for by foundations hoping to lure national chain stores into city neighborhoods. They hope the big chains will provide jobs, lower cost and higher quality goods, and increased local taxes.
