Kentucky losing in growth arena

Kentucky incomes were more stagnant than in most of the country from 2017 to 2018, according to research by Stateline, a nonprofit news organization from the Pew Charitable Trusts. Stateline’s investigation into growth in per capita income in every state is evidence national policies and international politics have been picking the economy’s winners and losers — and Kentucky landed in the loser’s bracket. Only Washington, D.C., and three other states — Nebraska, South Carolina and Vermont — had less growth than Kentucky in per capita income from 2017 to 2018. And all four of those jurisdictions already have higher per capita income than the Bluegrass state.
