State’s economic outlook ‘precarious', economists say

A summary of the recent quarterly meeting of the MassBenchmarks Editorial Board has been released. "Excerpts from the Board" details the group's thoughts on the current and future prospects for the state's economy. 

From the summary's introduction:

"Economic indicators for the Commonwealth are generally positive, including employment, unemployment, and output. In spite of this, there is a sense that the state economic outlook rests on precarious footing. This largely reflects the uncertain outlook for the global economy, and a recent slowing of U.S. economic growth."

The NewBostonPost , Providence Business News, WAMC radio, and the Fitchburg Sentinel & Enterprise also covered the release.

MassBenchmarks is the journal of the Massachusetts economy and is published by the UMass Donahue Institute in collaboration with the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston. Its editorial board is made up of leading economic analysts from across Massachusetts. The opinions expressed by the Editorial Board do not necessarily represent the opinions of the Federal Reserve or the University of Massachusetts.
