In all likelihood, most of you aren’t visiting StateImpact for our primary coverage. Yes, we completely agree that the Republican primary is a Very Big Deal. But most people don’t go to business news sites to get nitty-gritty political coverage, either. So we try to keep political stories strictly focused on New Hampshire’s business and economic environment. They have to be specific to the situation here. Every time a politician talks about business in New Hampshire, we don’t automatically post it.
If you tuned-in to NHPR’s “The Exchange” on November 21, you might have heard economist Russ Thibeault talking about an interesting (and these days, somewhat obscure) report. We’ll get to that in a minute. But first, a bit of background.
