US Housing Starts Plunge -16.4% Since Last November As Fed Tightens (Permits Plunge -22.4% YoY)

US housing starts plunged -16.4% since the same time last year (aka, YoY) as The Federal Reserve continues tightening its monetary policy.

Since October (aka, MoM), housing starts only dropped -.049% in November. 1-unit detached starts were down -4.06%. But multifamily (5+) starts were up 4.85% MoM.

Building permits were down -11.24% from October to November (baby, its cold outside!) and down -22.4% since November 2021 (aka, YoY).

Now, watch as President Biden and The Fed make housing construction disappear.
