How Can Skyscrapers Predict Economic Crashes? It’s Your Dime Interview with Mark Thornton

  by    0   0

What can skyscrapers tell us about the state of the economy?

A lot actually. In fact, you can predict economic crashes by looking at skyscraper construction, as economist Mark Thornton explains in this episode of It’s Your Dime.

Mark Thornton holds his PhD in economics from Auburn University. He predicted the 2000 housing crisis several years before it started. Mark is the author of several books including his most recent release, The Skyscraper Curse and How Austrian Economics Predicted Every Major Economic Crisis of the Last Century.

In this episode of It’s Your Dime, Mike and Mark discuss how skyscrapers can help us predict economic crashes, the Austrian business cycle, why printing money out of thin air causes problems and what skyscrapers are telling us about the condition of the economy today.
