There is a branch of economics that explains the relationship between economics and general social behavior. It tells us how ethics of a specific population, their held beliefs and practices affect the economy in which they live.
We here at the Association of Employers and Laborers in Baltimore understand this concept. We look at how held beliefs and ethics in a community has affected their business and try and shape our communication and advice around their existing community. We know that every demographic and population is different and should be evaluated before making executive decisions that could greatly change how a business is run. Often times employers need to be trained on specifics about their community that they may have not known. Understanding a target demographic and how they think is crucial to providing good service and building a positive relationship with cliental.
There is something to be said about listening to the customer. While the customer may not always be right, finding a balance that allows a business owner to provide services and make a reasonable profit is important for every business.
