I saw this article on “How Well Has Your State Recovered from the Pandemic” (https://jabberwocking.com/raw-data-how-well-has-your-state-recovered-from-the-pandemic/) and noticed that MA has the fifth largest drop from January 2020 to May 2020 and the fourth worst recovery from January 2020 to March 2021 (according to Kevin Drum).
Have people been aware of this (lack of) performance? What are the reasons for such a poor recovery? Is it related to the loss of all that student $$$ when the universities and colleges migrated to virtuality? Loss of tourism? Are Governor Baker’s policies part of the reason?
Might be good to start asking these questions.
