  • Mass. job growth best since 2000

    The Boston Globe - 01/24/2014

    Alan Clayton-Matthews, a Northeastern University economics professor, said the state is benefitting from stronger national and world economies. The International Monetary Fund recently said it expected the global economy to grow faster than earlier forecasts, noting improving consumer confidence in Europe and a roaring stock market in the United States.

    Last month, the biggest job employment gains in Massachusetts came in professional, scientific and business services, which include technology, scientific research, and consulting firms. That sector added 4,700 jobs in December and more than 14,000 in 2013.
