The focus of the article is on the property cycle; the author asserts that "construction of exceptionally tall buildings is a reliable indicator of economic crises in the making" and goes on to discuss the burst housing bubble of 2007. [The article quotes a 2008 paper by Hugo Benitez-Silva et al., that used the Health and Retirement Study data to analyze respondent perceptions of housing values.]
