Abstract

"Focus on York County" piece on the rescue of the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in Kittery, which won a contract to service the new Virginia Class submarines. Local officials emphasize that York County needs to "diversify" and expand its economic base. Any sudden loss of shipyard jobs would shock the local economy, with both direct and indirect effects on businesses and jobs. A study by Maine economist Charles Colgan, called "Looking Beyond the Shipyard," concludes that York County needs to align with metropolitan areas like Portland and Portsmouth to realize growth.
