BRA Research Division Releases "Boston Gives More Than it Gets Report"

Apr 21, 2010

In 2006, the Boston Redevelopment Authority released a report called “Boston Gives More than it Gets from the Rest of Massachusetts”, which demonstrated that the City of Boston serves as the state’s economic engine, a key generator of jobs, Gross State Product, state tax revenues, tourism, and affordable housing.
