Abstract

Maine's state economist Amanda Rector, chief investment officer for People's United Bank John Traynor, economics professor at the University of Maine Machias Jonathan Reisman, economist Rachel Bouvier, and chief economist at Planning Decisions Inc. Charles Lawton offer their opinions for how Maine will grow in the coming year. In the abbreviated interviews they are asked what their predictions for areas of growth in Maine are; what effect the Donald Trump White House may have on the economy; what impact the new legislation regarding overtime rule, minimum wage and the legalization of marijuana may have on business; and how Maine can increase its labor pool. A text box on Maine's Infrastructure 2016 Report Card (GPA: C-) is included. [images]
