Surviving the Energy Crisis

Laurie G. Lachance, President & CEO, Maine Development Foundation

"Surviving the Energy Crisis - Just the title suggests the image of battening down the hatches and preparing for the challenges that await us. Certainly - each and every one of us is under pressure because of energy prices at home, at work, at school, church, hospital, you name it. When prices started to rise a few years ago my first instinct was to ignore it and hope it would go away. Then I tried to do simple things to just survive it. But now it is time to do more than just survive; it's time to take control." Former State Economist and current President of the Maine Development Foundation, Laurie Lachance, who has been analyzing and forecasting Maine's economic performance for 25 years, shares her perspective on the current energy crisis.
