  • With GE on its way, Mass. economy comes full circle

    The Boston Globe - 01/19/2016

    Manufacturing workers in Massachusetts are more likely to have completed college and received graduate degrees than in any other state, said Barry Bluestone, director of the Dukakis Center for Urban and Regional Policy at Northeastern University. Local factories that pumped out plastic pink flamingos for American lawns in the 1960s now produce sophisticated polymers used in medical devices, prosthetics, and other health care products, Bluestone said.

    “This is where you want to be if you want to be on the cutting edge of technology,” Bluestone said.
