Rhode Island Will Recover, After Everyone Else Does
A projection posted at the New York Times Economix blog divides the 50 states and the District of Columbia into 5 groups, based on when they are expected to be home to the same number of jobs that they were in December 2007.
The first group has already recovered. The group after that is projected to recover by 2013. The last group isn’t expected to recover until “past 2017”.
There are only 3 states in the last group: Nevada, Michigan, and…I’ll let you guess the third.
(Also, would anyone like to interpret the significance of the fact that one of the three places that has already made its recovery is D.C.?)
