Treading Water: A Weak Recovery Checks Inflation

Publication Date: 12/22/2010
Author: Tim Grogan with Bruce Buckley
Format: HTML

Description:
No more federal stimulus money, no highway bill, a weak economic recovery, a stalled housing market, a nonresidential building market yet to bottom out, gridlock in government, continued high unemployment—it could add up to no inflation in 2011. That is about as simple as a cost forecast can be. Inflation? Not so much. Engineering News-Record expects its Building Cost Index to increase just 1.3% next year after rising 3.6% in a difficult 2010 market. ENR projects its Construction Cost Index to increase 2.0% in 2011 following this year’s 3.6% gain.
