New Jersey Economy
About half of Alabama
New Jersey has been a leader in industry
since Thomas Edison established his research laboratory in Menlo Park in 1876.
The color television and videotape recorder were both invented in New Jersey
research facilities. The state continues to be a leader in technology.
New Jersey produces chemicals, pharmaceuticals, machinery, electronic equipment,
and processed foods. Pipelines carrying oil from Texas and Oklahoma come to an
end in Bayonne, New Jersey. Oil refineries in nearby Carteret and Linden process
this natural resource.
Agriculture plays a major role in the state’s economy. Dairy products, fruits,
nuts, vegetables, and greenhouse and nursery items are produced.
New Jersey is a leading transportation and shipping center with busy ports
located on the Newark and New York Bays. The state is also a thriving vacation
destination due to its ocean resorts, lakes, mountains, and forested areas.
