McConnon Comments in Regional Economies Report

Comments from Jim McConnon, business and economics specialist and professor of economics with University of Maine Cooperative Extension and the UMaine School of Economics, were included in a Bangor Daily News article about the increasing strength of the Portland-area economy. The Bangor-area economy also is important as a service center for northern and eastern Maine, according to the article, which notes that McConnon has developed a method based on taxable retail sales figures to measure a community’s success in attracting money from outside its confines.
