We are visual people these days and I found this post and the accompanying graphic pretty stunning.
Inflation? What Inflation?
What they found was that $50k in lumber in 2015 could build 14.74 new single-family homes. By April 2020, the same price of lumber could build around 10.5 homes. And in May, after a meteoric rise in lumber prices, $50k in lumber could only build 2.11 homes.
Nah, things are fine.
