Abstract: This distinguished author recognizes that the United States has been in a prolonged real estate cycle since 1946, with the greatest volume of new housing in world history during this 37-year period. Public and private housing starts from 1900 through 1981 are presented and are broken down according to single-family and multifamily housing.
