The New York state Comptroller is predicting that 225,000 jobs could be lost in the state over the two-year period ending October 2009, Bloomberg reports.

"Wall Street’s importance to the economy is so great that for each financial-sector job lost, two positions will vanish in other industries in New York City and 1.3 jobs will disappear elsewhere in the state," according to the comptroller's report.
