Cost of Living Index


  Central Massachusetts usually has the lowest energy and food expenses in the state, but this is surprising.

 This article, from The North Central Massachusetts Economic Development Council, confirms what I have long believed; that an area that has small and medium sized independent small businesses, will benefit from lower consumer prices.

  Central Massachusetts and Worcester County have been strong holds of "mom and pop" businesses. Competition is a benefit of a capitalist economy. Everyone benefits from healthy competition. Businesses have to keep on their toes and provide better service at a lower cost than the shop down the road. The consumer is the big winner.

  Just another good reason to buy local.
