Massachusetts economic growth lags nation in the first part of the year
Boston Globe - 04/28/2017
Massachusetts is likely to see stronger, though not robust, growth through the rest of the year, said Alan Clayton-Matthews, an economics professor at Northeastern University.
“It’s temporary,” Clayton-Matthews said. “I would expect the pace to pick up.”
In Massachusetts, the last and first quarter of a year may be more volatile due to fluctuations in company bonuses, especially in sectors such as financial services, Clayton-Matthew said.
