Practically all roads lead to headhunting in the United States of America (USA), as the largest national economy in the world is certain to have something to offer in every industry and in every niche sector. So those who don’t wish to embark on any “entrepreneurial experiment” are well advised to take a look at the American market.

With 327 million inhabitants, the USA is the third most populated country in the world, after China and India, and with a gross domestic product of 20.6 billion US dollars in 2018, the world’s largest economic power.

The USA’s strongest point is in the service sector, which accounts for 77.6% of its GDP. The banking, insurance and real estate sectors are particularly strong. And although the economic structure is described as fundamentally “post-industrial”, the manufacturing industries contributed 20.8% of its GDP. The US economy is very much dependent on domestic consumption, however, - the Americans account for around 30% of global consumer spending. It’s not surprising, therefore, that the USA’s balance of trade not infrequently shows deficits of somewhere between ten and a hundred billion - thus the Americans import more goods and services than they are able to export.

Most of the American population consists of immigrants from central and southern Europe - hence 72.4% are white. Afro-Americans make up the largest minority, with 12.6%. With 4.8% of the population, America’s Asian minority would also be worthy of mention. The Native Americans currently account for only 0.9% of the total population of the country.

Although the USA does not keep a register of the religious status of its inhabitants for legal reasons, a survey by the Pew Research Center shows that around 70.6% feel they belong to the Christian faith and 22.8% of respondents have no religious beliefs. Only 1.9% practise the Jewish faith and fewer than 1% profess the Muslim faith. Around 80% of Christian Americans state that their faith is important to them.
