COVID-19 pandemic pushing the MA economy towards recession
From the Note:
"Our recent MassBenchmarks' editorial board meeting was unlike any other in the over two-decade history of our journal. Our first ever virtual meeting was motivated by the need for social distancing in recognition of the growing public health threat presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. The discussion focused on the wide variety of ways in which this public health emergency is likely to affect the economy, with special attention to the ways in which the ongoing crisis can be expected to weigh on the Commonwealth's economic and fiscal outlook."
