Economics 101 – Supply, Demand, and Record Number of Job Openings in U.S. and Affordable Factory-Built Housing

February 14th, 2019 Comments off

Economics101SupplyDemandRecordNumberJobOpeningsUSAffordableFactoryBuiltHomes

There are those in media who attempt to hide or mask their agenda.  That tens of millions of Americans apparently believe that many in media have an agenda is underscored by what is purportedly the most accurate polling unit’s new research, linked here.

 

Editorially, the MHProNews opposes or supports an organization, concept, or candidate not based upon personality, but rather for the practical implications of their policies.  Race, gender, religion, or other similar factors don’t enter into that equation. Policies matter, and complimenting policies, are the track record of the person, party, or organization that advances a policy stance.

If that’s politically incorrect, so be it.

One can debate the style of President of the United States (POTUS) Donald J. Trump.  One might support or oppose specific tweets or comments. But when objective performance is evaluated, a fair minded individual should respect the 45th president’s track record.  The president has bucked several long-time GOP political stances, as well as several positions held by Democrats.  Why?  You could argue that it is because of Economics 101. For those looking for a better understanding, the video below may help illustrate.

 

 

Some examples of POTUS’ policies and how they reflect Economics 101 are these points.  Once the president pushes for tighter immigration policies, for example, that means that if all else remains equal, then the supply of labor will be subject to more demand as time moves on. That will boost wages, which are now rising at the fastest pace in roughly 2 decades. Or consider tariffs, which are unpopular with some groups.  Nevertheless, those tariffs create more demand for American products, that too can be good for U.S. investments, and factors into the law of supply and demand.  Change the regulatory and tax policies, which the president’s leadership has promoted, and you begin to create a dynamic that results in favorable economic growth.

 

 

One of the measures of the health of the economy is found in the latest data points, provided by the White House press office, found further below.  A booming economy, more capital, easier and common sense regulations are formulas for more growth in demand for affordable housing.  That includes modern manufactured homes.

Job Openings Hit Record High of 7.3 Million in December

“The number of job openings hit a record high of 7.3 million in December, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported Tuesday in a sign of the labor market’s strength,” Joseph Lawler reports in the Washington Examiner.

“The construction industry recorded 382,000 new posts, far more than ever before . . . In the past three months, the economy has added an average of 241,000 net new jobs a month, more than twice as much as needed to keep up with population growth and keep unemployment trending down.”

“USA Today ran a surprising story on Tuesday headlined ‘Can the middle-class revival under Trump last?’ It’s surprising — shocking really — because it might just be the first time a major news outlet has admitted that there has been a middle-class revival under Trump,” the Investor’s Business Daily editorial board writes. “It’s a safe bet that had a Democrat been in the White House over the past two years things would be different.”

 

 

“U.S. manufacturing is once again in the news. New data shows America’s factories adding 261,000 jobs from January 2018 to January 2019. In the State of the Union, President Trump emphasized the urgency of confronting predatory trade from countries like China,” Michael Stumo writes in The Hill. “There’s no doubt that America’s manufacturers are currently rebounding. The tariffs that President Trump imposed a year ago on steel, aluminum, solar panels and washing machines have already created more than 11,000 new jobs.”

 

 

“The Donald Trump White House is more than capable of doing conventional things well. Last week’s State of the Union saw a complex policy process synthesized into a well-delivered prime-time address that captured the president’s unique policy agenda and won high praise,” Raj Shah writes in USA Today. “But if conventional management styles alone could make or break a presidency, historians would be praising Jimmy Carter and vilifying Ronald Reagan.”

 

— End of White House release. —

 

MHProNews’ management editorially supported President Trump in 2016.  We supported the lion share of the candidates that the president campaigned for in 2018, for policy reasons.

We are non-partisan in the sense that we belong to no political party, we are independents.  We also recognize that Democrats and Republicans could – on paper, at least – may find common ground on issues such as antitrust action and infrastructure, to name but two points.

This writer very specifically promoted candidate Trump during the 2016 campaign, in a letter that was on the Trump campaigns website for several months.  See the screen capture, below.

 

12ReasonsEducatedIranianAmericanWomanSupportsDonaldTrumpPostedMastheadBlogMHProNews954x846

While the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) paid for two pro-Clinton speakers in the closing days before the 2016 election, the Kovach family supported Donald J. Trump’s candidacy as the best for the industry, small business and hundreds of millions of Americans. One of those stories ended up on the president’s campaign website, and hundreds of conservative and pro-Trump websites.

 

In short, we are transparent and strive to be clear.  Our agenda is to advance this nation, it’s people, and our industry. For reasons of policy, we see more prudence from Democrats like Howard Schultz, who is lambasting the so-called Green New Deal backed by Democrats.

As an immigrant to the U.S., this writer’s perspective is one of support for the vast majority of the practical policies that President Trump has advanced.  MHProNews editorially believes that the practical results are manifest.

Are there many things still yet to do?  Yes.  But based upon the dynamics of Washington, D.C., the president deserves an A for what has already been accomplished.

Supply, Demand, Manufactured Homes, and Land Lease Communities

September 11th, 2018 Comments off

SupplyDemandManufacturedHOmesLandLeaseCommunitiesBuyersResidentsDailyBuisnessNewsMHProNews

As you listen to this video about blueberries, think about manufactured home community sites, instead of blueberries.

 

With that understanding, this video is one way to explain to resident activist group members why a lack of new construction is one of the drivers of higher site fees.


But another factor that has to be considered by activists and there supporters is interest by home shoppers in manufactured homes themselves.

When headline grabbing activists make living in a manufactured home community sound less appealing, what that does is arguably harm the values of existing pre-HUD Code mobile homes and manufactured homes. Why? Because the demand is lower, the price will likely be lower.

As noted earlier today, these issues aren’t meant to be a put-down of well-intended followers of NMHOA, MHAction or other activist-leaders.

Rather, reports like this and the one below are meant to give a tool to those on staff who may interact with such residents.

Tim Sheahan, NMHOA President, Controversial Points of Agreement with Marty Lavin, George Allen on Communities

These provides a means to explain to those who may be well intended, but are logically being misled by the leadership of manufactured home activist residents. NMHOA and MHAction leaders are arguably harming the interests of member home owners on several levels.

Maybe that’s why those leaders don’t want to discuss or debate such issues in public?

We’ll plan reports like this on MHLivingNews, but until then, your front line staff need to get their arms around this.  We already have the related report below.

Washington Post – Protests of HUD Secretary Ben Carson, Manufactured Housing Institute, by MHAction, New York Communities for Change, CarsonWatch – An Inside Look

Because there are per sources, hundreds if not thousands in MHVille who don’t know how to explain such issues to residents and shoppers.

To learn more details, please see the related reports, linked above and below. Retailers, communities and others should make sure that your staffs are on top of these types of nuts-and-bolts issues.  “We Provide, You Decide.” © ## (News, analysis, and commentary.)

People crave dignity.

 

The System has been Rigged,” the 45th President of the United States (POTUS), Donald J. Trump, has said. He understands these realities.

POTUS Trump undertook to break the grip of those who’ve rigged the free markets that harm the opportunities, and diminish the dignity of tens of millions in our Republic.

That’s a worthy topic to consider on Flag Day, which happens to be the President’s, and this writer’s, birthday.

Millions have been misled by flawed education, and agenda-driven opinions masquerading as facts or news.

Dignity flows from many factors, including:

  • the pride of work,
  • rising earnings,
  • maximum opportunities,
  • innovation,
  • enriching human relationships,
  • the spiritual life,
  • a growing net worth,
  • which can be fueled by the security, and pride of home ownership.

The bullets above yields a healthier society, happier people, and offers the additional benefit of reducing the costs for government at all levels.

Common Sense Solutions that Boost Wealth for Everyday Americans

Small-town business expert, talk radio host, and author Tom Egelhoff plus myself share some common beliefs.  Those common principles caused us to do a joint article on how factory-crafted manufactured homes are a proven path to increased home ownership, that fuels the creation of more wealth for everyday Americans.

Egelhoff and myself also share a reason-based confidence in President Trump’s fine work on behalf of all Americans.

RevDonaldTyeJrBusinessmanManufacturedHousingAdvocateDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews

Tye explained that public housing – an entitlement – often yields addiction. Ownership vs. renting or living in “projects” leads to integrity, a view he likens to those of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

ItsAsWrongtoUseNWordToDescribeBlackAsUseTWordTodescribeManufacturedHomeRevDonaldTyeJr.ManufacturedHousingNotT-railerNotNword

Isn’t this part of the antidote to the t-word issue?

Someone making a basic wage is unable to buy the typical, conventional house in America.

But millions priced out of conventional housing can buy a manufactured home.

When millionaires and even billionaires own a manufactured home, the rest ought to consider its wisdom too.  For example, POTUS Trump supporter and performer Kid Rock is one of those who owns a private jet, a Rolls Royce, and a manufactured home.

The Kid Rock video below uplifts – celebrates – those who own a lower cost house, be it a manufactured home, or an older conventional house.  Note to parents with kids at hand: the video has some salty language and suggestive images. The video has had over 16.4 million views as of 6.14.2018.

 

Daily Business News on MHProNews sources tell us that Vice President Mike Pence understands first-hand the value of manufactured homes, which along with RVs, are produced in his home state of Indiana, and elsewhere from coast-to-coast.

 

America First, Economic Nationalism are Common Sense

Peace, prosperity and security are all supported by the president’s most recent deal on behalf of Americans, Koreans, the people of Asia, and the nation-states of the world.

America First” is common sense.

Placing one’s homeland first is part of a new geopolitical framework the president is creating. It recognizes the inherent goodness of nationalism and cultural pride.

POTUS’ move away from globalism is a step toward the proven principles of solidarity, and subsidiarity.

Someday, historians may say that pragmatic economic nationalism, personal or cultural pride, solidarity, and subsidiarity are key contributions of what can be called “the Trump Doctrine.”

 

Tariffs and America First

There are elitists across the political spectrum that don’t understand, or won’t admit to, the fundamental common sense of economic tools such as tariffs.

By contrast, the president embraces their use.

When America was a young nation, tariffs protected our farmers and factories. Before the income tax, when the federal government was smaller, tariffs protected American jobs, plus paid much of the federal government’s expenses.

POTUS Trump no doubt knows what Pocket Sense expressed this way, “Prior to the passage of the 16th Amendment in 1913, the United States government funded its operations mainly through excise taxes, tariffs, customs duties and public land sales.”

PocketSenseFUndingUSGOvtBeforeINcomeTax

Given the numerous scandals, millions of man-hours of lost time, plus other problems with the current income tax system, is the president leading America back to the future by using tariffs in strategic ways?

TaxReformPragerUSteveForbesDailyBusinessNewsManufacturedHousingINdustryResearchDataReportsMHProNews

One doesn’t always know what the president’s next move is. Are his threatened use of tariffs also a possible signal for something else in the future?  Would this president at some point take on a reform of  the U.S. income tax system, which Steve Forbes, and others say is massively wasteful?  Image credit, Prager U.

 

Trusts-Busting Yields Innovation, More Businesses, and Job Creation/Protection

MHProNews has chronicled the rise of globalist uber-billionaires, and their monopolistic conglomerates.

The president has signaled a willingness to do trust-busting actions.

Breaking up monopoles would protect and fuel American Jobs, American Innovation, and American Independent Businesses, that historically create the most jobs, and also innovate the most.

Does Monopoly Power Impact Workers’ Stagnant Wages? MH Industry Impact$

Linked reports – like NY Stern’s Scott Galloway speaking out against monopolies, or how monopolies harm workers and wages, – can be read later for more details.

“Winners and Losers,” L2 Founder, Prof Scott Galloway on Monopolies

It’s the mega conglomerates that are automating more, and hiring fewer human workers.

It’s the leaders of the mega corporations that often want open borders, cheap foreign labor, and the illegal immigration that is undermining our economic, judicial and electoral systems.

Progressive “Nation” Reports on Monopolies Cites Buffett, Clayton, Others – MH Industry Impact?

Warren Buffett led Berkshire Hathaway’s manufactured housing finance, production and other units have been accused of monopolistic practices by a range of media across the left-right political divide.

Land Use Killing Affordable Housing, How Common-Sense Law Enforcement

Unlocks $2 Trillion Dollars in Additional Annual GDP

Problematic zoning, so-called expert “central planners,” and land use policies have hamstrung America for far too many decades.

Two university professors in 2016 estimated that the roadblocks to affordable housing are costing the U.S. economy some $2 Trillion dollars annually in additional GDP.

Using their $2 Trillion potential GDP growth statistic, if existing federal laws were being robustly enforced, the economy could experience a largely unsubsidized jolt that could create even more good jobs.

The president spotlighted factory home builder Levitt in a speech.

President Trump Spotlights Factory Home Builder in Speech, Proven Promotion, Support of Industry Advancement

POTUS Trump understands from his professional experiences that factory home building can create entry-level to elegant homes.

MultipleReasonsExpectManufacturedHousingDoBetterThanSiteBuiltHousingEricBelskyEecDirJointCenterHousingStudiesHarvardUnivDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews

At the time Belsky made this prediction, manufactured homes were selling over 250,000 new units per year. What happened?  Smoking Gun 3 spells it out.

From Operation Breakthrough in the 1970s, to Harvard’s Eric Belsky in the early 2000s, the potential for the manufactured homes that HUD Secretary Ben Carson called “Amazing!” to fuel the American Dream is real.

HUD’s Operation Breakthrough, Promoting Factory, Industrialized Building – Mobile Home Era to Modern Manufactured Homes.

Enforcement of the Manufactured Housing Improvement Act of 2000 – which includes enhanced preemption – utilizes principles the president grasps from his myriad of professional experience.

Mandating the robust enforcement of the Duty to Serve Manufactured Housing that the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008 required would also aid the process. Leveling the playing field via regulatory tweaks across FHA, VA, and the USDA (Rural Housing) loan programs for manufactured homes in both fee simple and home only scenarios would too.

The New York Times and MHProNews surveys both suggested that manufactured home owners were among the once “forgotten Americans” who supported President Trump.

Those home owners deserve the dignity and respect of being manufactured home owners.

A simple president tweet in support of those manufactured home owners could be a useful step to restoring their dignity, often robbed by elitists politicos whos slammed them as deplorables.

Enhanced preemption, education on the realities of manufactured homes vs. the myths, and proper lending access could transform America in short order.

That can be done via enforcement of existing law.  It would cost very little to the federal or local governments.  It would increase the property tax base.  It would increase the net worth of Americans.

God is modest, and the Creator understands the notion of saving the best for last. The American Dream is tied up with faith, flag, family, and fortune.  Hebrew and Christian Scriptures prove that the Ten Commandments protect private property.

God isn’t a socialist.  God’s Word enshrines free enterprise, and private property.

President Trump’s taking action that protects faith communities, defending the use of the phrase merry Christmas, and protect Life, Liberty, and Property are Godly principles.

These are all concepts worth to reflect on this day, and every day.

Our sincere thanks for the president’s many successes to date.

Here’s to more, and a heartful happy birthday wish to President Donald J. Trump. Please continue your work at making America ever greater, all for the benefit of restoring the dignity and opportunities of Americans first. ## (Coaching tips, marketing, sales, and management news.)
