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 region lost jobs in nearly all major industries and added jobs in only two: leisure & hospitality and education & health services. Even with an unemployment rate that rose, New England had a lower rate of joblessness than most other Census divisions and the nation overall. Demand for residential real estate remained strong, as home prices soared at above-average rates. Consumer price inflation persisted at a higher rate in the region than ...

The economic performance of the New England states in 2004: an overview

The year 2004 marked the beginning of New England?s economic turnaround. After three consecutive years of job losses ? not to mention 86 years of World Series famine ? the region emerged victorious.

Recovery was also reflected in strong exports growth, increases in the economic activity index, and improved consumer confidence. Although consumer price inflation in New England was milder than in recent ...

Six-state review

New England states are facing their worst fiscal crises in at least a decade. General revenues, especially those from the personal income tax, fell sharply in every New England state except New Hampshire in FY2002. All six states closed the fiscal year with deficits. Although preliminary reports suggest that FY2003 revenue collections in some states may be up from last year, deficits are still expected throughout the region. In response, all six states are cutting expenditures, drawing down reserve accounts, and/or raising taxes and fees.

An overview of New England's economic performance in 2007

New England?s economy showed bright signs of growth in 2007, but residential real estate cast a shadow. Job growth was moderate and on par with that of the nation, but the region fared better with an unemployment rate lower than the national average. Exports from the region rose in value, but at a lesser pace than seen in the nation. Although the region remained the richest in per capita income, growth in total personal income in New England was slower than in the nation. Declining home prices, a significant reduction in housing permits, and spikes in foreclosures rounded out a generally ...

"How deeply do we dip into quickly diminishing reserves?"...
