Drive-By Economics Time: Share Your Data

Okay, this is the part of the program where people share what they’re seeing out there in their local economy. Has traffic picked up on your commute? People bragging about purchases? Neighbor lost a job? Share it here.

To start things off on a bullish note, a reader sent me the following upbeat stuff via email:

  • In Provincetown, MA real estate has started popping. Multiple properties are going under contract.
  • An executive friend said that a year’s enough time spent scrimping and saving, so he’s buying a ‘luxe condo
  • Two glass contractors I’m asking for bids on a steam shower enclosure "we
    were dead in the spring and now our phone is ringing off the hook"
