ABSTRACT
The author comments on the declining home sales in the U.S. He believes that the declines in housing construction and the slow home price appreciation is not enough to cause a recession given the strength of the labor market and consumer spending. He thinks the challenge for retailers is to balance the increase in labor costs against a more modest rate of revenue growth.
