Like most of the nation, New England suffered economically in 2008. Job losses, rising unemployment, and slumping real estate markets were all factors in one of the worst years for the region?s economy.

The economic performance of the New England states in 2001: an overview

The year 2001 marked the end of a ten-year economic expansion for the nation and New England. Both the recession that began in the first quarter of 2001 and the terrorist attacks of September 11 weakened the region's labor market, which had built strength in the 1990s and through 2000. Employment in nearly all of the region's states and major industries declined in 2001, while unemployment became more widespread. Furthermore, the value of exports dropped across most major industries and destinations. The region's residential real estate market remained robust, however, as prices increased ...

Although the region remained the richest in per capita income, growth in total personal income in New England was slower than in the nation.

The economic performance of the New England states in 2003: an overview

Burdened by the poor performances of the labor markets in Connecticut and Massachusetts, the New England region lost jobs for the third year in a row.

The article concluded, quite correctly, that "all in all, the fiscal condition of the New England states remains strong." And remain strong it did through FY2000 and FY2001. In FY2002, the states' fortunes changed.
