Was it the government shutdown, the stock market dive, the trade war or just a bad month?
Whatever the reason, there was a 28 percent rise in the number of New Hampshire bankruptcy filings in January compared to last year, as well as a sharp increase in small business filings.
Some 159 Granite State individuals and businesses filed in January, 15 more than in December and 35 more than in December 2018. That’s the worst start of a year since 2014. Of course, it was still quite an improvement from January 2010 – in the heart of the recession – when there were exactly twice as many filings, 318.
