New Hampshire’s Economic Recovery and the Role of Public Investments

The second virtual event of the two-part series, Building an Equitable and Inclusive Recovery, will be held on Tuesday, September 27, from 11:00am to 12:00pm.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a dramatic impact on the lives, well-being, and economic situations of Granite Staters since it reached New Hampshire in March 2020. The public policy response and associated investments have helped families and individuals through the worst hardships of the pandemic and helped sustain and restart the economy. However, these efforts do not ensure an equitable and inclusive recovery going forward.

This virtual events will review the current state of the New Hampshire and New England economies. Speakers will discuss the major constraints on economic opportunity, the effect of the recovery thus far on the well-being of residents, and the role public policy has had, and can continue to have, in promoting greater prosperity and well-being for all Granite Staters.

Phil Sletten
Research Director, NHFPI


Jeffrey Thompson
Vice President and Economist, Director of the New England Public Policy Center, Federal Reserve Bank of Boston
