Its all over the internet. The Asian office of Barclays is out with a report on the worldwide skyscraper boom and the looming implications for the global economy. The current boom does not have a true record-setting skyscraper under construction but the sheer volume of super high buildings and their locations (mostly China, India, the Middle East, and even in Europe) means it is something to definitely keep an eye on. The current global crisis was correctly signaled by the last record skyscraper in the summer of 2007. The Euro crisis also got a signal.
Also see my article on Skyscrapers and Business Cycles in the Quarterly Journal of Austrian Economics which provides the theory and history of the “curse.”
