Economic Outlook 2017

BusinessWest looks ahead to the new year and the prospects for hte local and state economy. MassBenchmark's executive editor Bob Nakosteen is a featured expert in the article.

Nakosteen quote: 

“Growth statewide has been somewhat modest, but continuous; we haven’t seen the unemployment rate this low since 16 years ago, the turn of the century,” I don’t think the economy is going gangbusters, but it’s been steady, moderate growth over a long period of time, with higher employment numbers and the total number of workers higher.”
