Labour is becoming an issue across the industry and with unemployment still relatively low (particularly in construction), it is difficult to see who will fill the short-term gaps without proper innovation, modernisation, or in some cases better planning.
Our 300th edition!
The Economic Week in Review started in 2015, just after the “Great Fall of China”, during the miner’s crash.
Since then we’ve published a round-up of everything that we think is important for construction pricing, documenting every high and every low, for 300 weeks.
Over the next few weeks, we’ll be publishing a summary of the events we recorded; some you may have forgotten and some that were not as important as we all thought they were going to be, and others appeared with no warning and and had a dramatic impact across our industry, and in some cases across the world. We hope you enjoy reminiscing!
