From POLITICO: NEW YORK — The coronavirus pandemic could plunge New York City into the worst economic crisis since the 1970s, costing the city 475,000 jobs and nearly $10 billion in revenue, a budget watchdog found.
According to a new report from the Independent Budget Office, the local economy is expected to lose 475,000 jobs over the next 12 months. That would lead to a shortfall of $9.7 billion in tax revenue in 2020 and 2021, compared to previous projections.
