On the latest episode of AGC’s ConstructorCast, we talk with two leading economists covering the construction sector: Ken Simonson, chief economist for AGC, and Kermit Baker, chief economist for the American Institute of Architects. Don’t be put off by their titles, though—these guys speak English!
Ken and Kermit provide a fast-paced overview of what to expect in the coming year for different categories of construction spending, labor availability and materials costs. They assess the broader economic environment and how various changes in economic growth or policy could affect contractors.
To receive the Data DIGest, Ken’s one-page weekly summary of economic news relevant to construction, email him at firstname.lastname@example.org. Visit AGC’s website at https://www.agc.org/learn/construction-data for construction-specific data and economic information.
