May 21st, 2009

In a report released at the New England Economic Partnership (NEEP) Spring Economic Outlook Conference held at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston today, Edinaldo Tebaldi, assistant professor of economics, and Edward Mazze, distinguished University professor of business administration at the University of Rhode Island, released a report, "The Rhode Island Economic Outlook and Forecast: Can Rhode Island Afford the Future?"

The report takes an optimistic view of Rhode Island's economic future based on three fundamental assumptions:

  1. Federal stimulus money will be in the state economy by 2010.
  2. The recent foreclosure mitigation plan will help the housing market.
  3. Credit will begin flowing again, especially to small businesses and consumers.

Tebaldi is also quoted in  The Providence Journal that Rhode Island's population losses that began in 2003 have ended.
