TEDMAG.com has posted a 4-part extravaganza -- on the 2003 construction forecast. Here's what's in there, and where to find it.
Part 1 -- The Economic Backdrop
-- economists who do construction forecasts have come very close to consensus about how 2003 will turn out for the national economy. Are you worried now?
-- plus: the bubble has not yet burst!
Part 2 -- Non-Residential Markets
-- big declines in office, industrial, warehouse + hotel/motel
-- retail construction is kinda OK
-- healthcare & educational building are doing great
-- plus: precisely how can anyone apply the word "sweep" to the recent elections?
Part 3 -- Residential + A Few Other Markets
-- low interest rates sustain new housing
-- plus: what China is doing, and will do, to the U.S. manufacturing base (it's not good).
Part 4 -- Our World Comes To An End
-- key facts about the national economy's continuing under-the-radar deterioration, in one place.
-- advice on where, precisely, to put your money now http://www.tedmag.com/default.asp?pagenumber=333
