October 1975
Edgartown, Massachusetts

For many years New England has suffered from high energy costs which have affected both the pattern and the pace of economic growth. The oil embargo of 1973 and the resultant tripling of oil prices intensified this long-standing problem and in addition awakened the region to the possibility of future energy shortages. In an attempt to contribute to the solution of these problems the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston sponsored this conference on New England and the Energy Crisis.
