Four Things Other New England States Are Doing Worse Than Maine
New England, on the whole, is an economically-depressed region. Between 2004 and 2014, the average cumulative growth of a New England state’s gross domestic product was less than 29 percent. During that same time, no New England state enjoyed growth levels among the top half of the United States, and only Massachusetts was higher than 36 out of 50.
