McAnneny said the foundation’s analysis was completed before Gov. Charlie Baker released his plan for the state’s reopening on Monday. She said the foundation’s analysis assumes that economic activity will resume this summer, but it will be slow and uneven, resulting in lower tax revenues. She said the expectation is that major employers will continue remote working, consumers will be slow to venture out to restaurants and retailers, and many of the unemployed will curtail their expenditures.
