I once thought they couldn’t build out my view, well they can’t totally, but they (whoever they are) are doing their best to prove that they can.
Yes, I know it’s a first world problem, but for a number of years now I have not been able to escape the cacophony of mind-deadening roar resulting from the cornucopia of tools that grind tear saw pound bore bludgeon rip and render as part of the building process. The visual pollution of man’s mechanical assistants don’t give me a warm fuzzy feeling either.
Today is a beautiful fall day and I would expect that those working on the building sites in this picture are enjoying the weather while they work, I would like to be happy for them but my empathy doesn’t extend that far.
Cheap money is fueling the building boom, plus banks taking equity positions in large building projects stokes the appetite of the risk takers. I’ve got a bad feeling that the genius leaders of industry are once more racing each other to turn our savings into debt.
This begs the question; why do they only build luxury apartments? When the bubble bursts, nobody but those who benefit from social destruction will have any equity.
Oh yep, I see.
The sharks can buy the worthless luxury cheap and hold until things get better.
Check your pension fund, bad shit is on the horizon and you don’t want to be caught holding the deeds to worthless paper
