We were in a bit of a bubble for the last decade.
Things really slowed down fast, over a period of months.
Seemed like right about the time I signed the papers on the second mortgage...

An anecdote. I was at a small cookout. There were four of us. We all had jobs. Two in finance, one in marketing and one in private education.

The next time we got together only two of us had jobs.

Not good here, mining has fallen on its face. Our shop used to support 3 guys now it only keeps me and the boss busy ,with me doing the lions share. Last week it was front page news, the Yukon is struggling. If not for lots of government workers things would be a lot different. We are over run with philipino's doing the jobs that are beneath us . Harper is useless imho.

Lots of things happening around here. Crazy busy and our company keeps growing and growing. The only thing that's really slowing things down are the pipelines.

Around these parts, it seems to be moving along reasonably well, I guess it depends what line of work your in. Lots of 50,60,70 story buildings being built with lots of cranes. Overall, real estate seems to be humming along with sales, although moderating, r.e. values continue to increase.

In Kansas City Suburbia, I'm seeing more and more empty business buildings and shops. Probably be a ghost town in a few more years.
