US home construction jumps by largest amount in 34 years
Builders broke ground on the most new homes in nine years last month, a response to strong demand that should lift the economy. Home construction soared 25.5 percent to a seasonally adjusted 1.3 million in October, the Commerce Department said Thursday. That is the biggest gain since July 1982. New construction is also at the highest level since August 2007, months before the Great Recession began.
