HOUSING STARTS CLIMB TO A SIX-MONTH HIGH....UPI(9-19-13)....U.S. builders started work in August on the highest number of single-family homes in six months and requested permits to build more in months to come. The figures suggest that housing remains a driver of economic growth despite higher mortgage rates.....Construction of single-family homes started rose 7 percent last month to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 628,000, the Commerce Department said Wednesday. That's the fastest rate since February. Builders sought 627,000 permits to construct future single-family homes, 3 percent higher than July and the best pace since MAY 2008......

You messes up.

Here is the link:
http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news...

Here is the headline:
Single-Family Housing Starts in U.S. Decline 3%

And first paragraph:
Sept. 17 (Bloomberg)-- Builders in the U.S. broke ground on fewer single-family homes last month as the expiration of the government’s tax credit for first-time buyers approached.

And with more people reducing their hours and no one getting raises, what houses are being built aren't being built in Michigan. Go find a new house in Detroit.
