  • Local economists back Patrick’s tax hike plan

    The Boston Globe - 03/11/2013

    “We believe there needs to be a significant increase in investment to make sure we remain economically competitive,” said Barry Bluestone, director of the Dukakis Center for Urban and Regional Policy at Northeastern University, one of the 57 economists who signed the statement backing the governor’s plan.
