“The Granite State’s economy has barely budged compared to its New England neighbors,” according to the analysis by the business-oriented television network.
“Massachusetts owes most of its improvement to a jump in the economy category, where it improved to third place from 21st last year, thanks to solid growth and an improving housing market,” according to CNBC. “State finances are stable and Massachusetts offers a diverse industrial base.
