  • Local control on the line amid Biogen takeover speculation

    The Boston Globe - 08/04/2016

    The importance of corporate headquarters to Massachusetts was highlighted by the successful pursuit of General Electric Co. by the Baker and Walsh administrations, said economist Barry Bluestone, director of Northeastern University’s Dukakis Center for Urban and Regional Policy.

    “I would expect whoever acquired Biogen would continue to have a large presence in Massachusetts because this is a major research center,” Bluestone said. “But there would be less loyalty to the community, and when decisions are made on where to locate operations, they would be made somewhere else.”
