The first house construction boom of the 2020s has been the one that’s been predicted by many.
In a way, the boom was supposed to be about the future of the American economy, and yet we’re living in an economy where the number of jobs and the number who are in the labor force has dropped.
What that means for the middle class is not clear.
But it does suggest that the current construction boom may not be sustainable.
That means that the country’s future could depend on how long this current boom lasts.
