How does Maine stack up against other states for our economy? There are plenty of factors to look at, and the Maine Development Foundation is measuring all of them. From wages to entrepreneurship, the cost of doing business to broadband access, the Measures of Growth report considers a wide variety of factors and rates them all. They’ve even included some new measures this year including racial/ethnic income equity and pre-K education.
Fast Forward Maine talked with MDF’s CEO, Yellow Light Breen, for a breakdown of the report’s findings. Fun side note: they also celebrated Yellow as their first “regular” on the show, with this being their first repeat guest & topic. Thanks, Rich and Yuri!
