Job growth for 2015 strong, but apt to slow
The Boston Globe - 01/21/2016
“It was a great year,” said Alan Clayton-Matthews a Northeastern University economics professor. “It won’t be expanding at the same rapid pace.”
Economic recoveries tend to wane after several years of strong growth, and that is likely to happen this year in Massachusetts, Clayton-Matthews said. But the collapse in oil prices, weak economic growth in China, and the uncertainty these developments have created could also weigh on job growth as companies become skittish about expanding too quickly.
