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 event reviewed the current state of the New Hampshire and New England economies. Speakers discussed 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.
This event featured brief presentations by Phil Sletten of NHFPI and Jeffrey Thomson of the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston and a moderated panel discussion, followed by an audience question-and-answer session.
