In a recent story on NECN/Channel, Bryan Engelhardt, assistant professor of economics at the College of the Holy Cross, commented on the nature of looming budget cuts across the country, including locally. Also known as the sequester, sweeping national budget cuts would impact many public spheres, cutting $85 billion from law enforcement, public health, work force development and education.
Reflecting on the long-term significance of such cuts, Engelhardt stated, “There is a lot of risk and a lot of uncertainty. It can add a lot of pressure to people.” He also recognized that there is a human cost to budget cuts, not merely a financial burden. “It’s not just $85 billion dollars,” he said. “It’s jobs here in Worcester.”
