Mass. economy outperforming US with steady growth

From the article:

"The Massachusetts economy kept steady in the second quarter of the year, despite lagging consumer spending, slowing growth elsewhere in the world, and the UK’s decision to leave the European Union, the University of Massachusetts reported Friday. The state’s economy grew at an annual rate of 3 percent, a notch better than the 2.9 percent expansion in the first three months of the year. Bolstered by still healthy economic sectors, such as health care, education, technology, and professional services, Massachusetts continues to outperform the nation, according to the report, published in the UMass economic journal, MassBenchmarks."
