The role of services in New England's rise and fall: engine of growth or along for the ride?

The downturn in the New England economy has surprised almost everyone by its severity and breadth. Even those who foresaw that the rapid expansion of the mid 1980s could not be sustained warned of slower growth rather than sharp contraction. This article assesses the role played by services and financial services in New Englands fluctuating economic fortunes. ; The author examines the size of the nationally oriented component of financial and other services and the stability of a more servicesoriented economy.

Modelling U.S. services trade flows: a cointegration-ECM approach

The U.S. service surplus soared from near zero in 1985 to about $60 billion in 1992, offsetting about two thirds of the goods trade deficit. Could this merely reflect improvement in data collection?
