The Syracuse metro ranked 100 out of 100 metro areas– with 100 being the worst — in economic growth, according to the 2017 Metro Monitor report from the Brookings Institution’s metropolitan policy program.
Syracuse, N.Y. — The Syracuse area ranks last in economic growth and near the bottom in prosperity and economic inclusion among the nation’s 100 largest metros, according to a report from a Washington, D.C., think tank.
In January, M&T Bank’s chief economist, Gary Keith, told CenterState CEO’s economic forecast breakfast that the area’s economic growth is trailing the average growth of U.S. metro areas as well as growth in the Albany and Buffalo areas.
