Hope for the US economy - Early responders (Architects) making money again.
Architects are about nine months ahead of the investment curve. They start getting paid long before a shovel turns the first sod. Their billings are way up from 2008 and 2009. Unemployment stats have government fakery baked in but these AIA designer billing stats look solid. There is a counter-current of investment trying to make headway against the sucking of the national debt. News from Calculated Risk. Having worked for an architect makes me appreciate how many months before construction the meter starts ticking.
