SEIS Research: The Economic & Social Impact of Direct Selling on Our Nation’s Story (Presented by DSEF)

Did you know that for each $1 spent in direct selling retail, $2.3 dollars are generated in the US economy?

In this session, Dr. Robert Peterson of the University of Texas at Austin will explain this data and explore how direct selling supports jobs in various sectors of the economy.  To bring this data to life, he will take a deep dive into the economies of five states – California, Utah, Florida, New York and Ohio.

Learn from a panel of academic experts how direct selling is an engine of opportunity in communities across the U.S., including Hispanic, rural and underserved communities.
