The coronavirus crisis is changing everything in ways we never expected. Read more below to understand our research and review custom options for obtaining detailed reporting and proprietary insights.
The coronavirus crisis has now emerged as a once-a-century transformation in the global economy, with radical impacts on trade-flows, consumer behavior, and spending across every industry. Collage Group members are now in the throes of intensive investigation into consumer response across every category.
Cultural backgrounds significantly influence the neuroloigical “defaults” in human behavior, especially when it comes to health.

Indeed, the difference in outcomes could not explained without recourse to an understanding of differences in culture.
Multicultural consumers will continue to drive the majority of spending growth through this crisis. Indeed, the multicultural contribution to growth has historically increased when the economy shrinks. Indeed, all our projections indicate the contribution can only increase in the future. As you can see from the chart below extracted from our Big Shift research, multicultural response is even more important at this time than in periods of economic strength.
