Where jobs have grown

This chart is a good representation of the economic development plan in Rhode Island. We call it meds and eds. What it neglects to show is how this strategy undercuts the economy. The way it does this is by funneling ever more money into two industries that leave everyone else poorer. The cost of health care and college educations has risen significantly faster than the general inflation rate. The medical industry is the leading cause of bankruptcies, which i suggest is not a good thing to base economic growth on. And student debt is a crisis. So our job producers are those things that make most people poorer. What a country.
