Lardaro: Rhode Island’s Economy See Big Gains in May

URI's Len Lardaro

Monday, July 16, 2018

Fortunately for Rhode Island, April’s economic performance did indeed turn out to be somewhat of an outlier, as I had suspected (actually hoped for, keeping my fingers crossed). Better yet, not only was the April Current Conditions Index value revised higher, from 67 to 75 (the decline in the Manufacturing Wage was reversed last month), for May, the Current Conditions Index rebounded sharply, reaching all the way to 92, as eleven of twelve indicators improved. May’s CCI value is tied with February for the highest level this year. And as strong monthly performances go, May was a very good month. I think it is safe to say at this point that barring an escalating trade war, fears of Rhode Island potentially activating its longer-term FILO status were indeed premature.

Monday, July 16, 2018

The #MeToo movement started by activist Tarana Burke gained momentum in October of 2017 when actress Alyssa Milano invited women on Twitter to respond “me too” to her tweet if they’d experienced sexual harassment or abuse. Women did so across social media, telling their stories and revealing the extent to which so many had lived in silence.

The Time’s Up movement was founded shortly thereafter to foster fairness, safety, and equity for women in the workplace. Part of its purpose is to alter the power system that favors men and thereby provides a foundation for discrimination and hostility toward women.
