Prof. Bob Forrant of UMass Lowell is a member of the editorial board of ‘MassBenchmarks,’ the highly respected UMass journal that tracks the state economy in the context of regional, national, and global conditions. The board today issued a statement about the “health” of the Massachusetts economy. Here’s the link

And here’s the link to Boston Globe business reporter Rob Gavin’s breaking-news story about the MassBenchmarks statement.

Also, here’s the link to another Globe story today by Gavin in which the president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston Eric Rosengren talks about what could have been done to avert the worst of the recent financial crisis. Note that Rosengren will be in Lowell for a Lunchtime Lecture at the UMass Lowell Inn & Conference Center on Monday, October 18, at 12 noon. There are only a few seats left for his talk, and reservations are required. To reserve a space, contact me at The program is co-sponsored by the Parker Lectures, UMass Lowell, and Middlesex Community College.
