NH consumers optimistic about state economy
The percentage of Granite State residents who think that they are personally better off since last year is at its highest point in six years.
After significantly improving from 2011 to 2012, perceptions about the New Hampshire economy have remained flat in 2013.
"Nearly half of New Hampshire residents believe the state's economic climate is good and will remain steady, and that's a good sign," said BIA President Jim Roche. "I believe that reflects confidence that our state's elected leaders will continue to work together, in a bipartisan fashion, to create business friendly policy that moves the state's economy forward. However, we should not forget about the impact decisions in Washington have on New Hampshire's economy and encourage our federal leaders to adopt the same level of discourse and consensus so that businesses everywhere, including New Hampshire, can continue to grow, add jobs and keep the economy moving forward."
