Commercial Real Estate Declining
Paper economy has a post showing the status of commerical real estate, which is declining.
I've read quite a few individual stories on building in big trouble. There's going to be more banking losses...
On a different topic, there has been stories about how the blog world has changed the way the market responds, but also who was right in what they were saying about the economy. I probably screened more then 100 blogs and followed them at least for a little while. What's really interesting to me is the best of the blogs on the financial matters that have unfolded look like my reading list, or at least half of them are on my reading list. I constantly deleted or didn't bother with many of the blogs I screened because they so didn't know what was happening.
I think the blogging world really helped to inform me about what was happening out there. I was looking for that information because from my own view I thought it looked bad and these blogs filled in details of what was happening and all kinds of information that you'd never get from a newspaper.
