Nope, not really. I've been in the building industry and running my own business for over 20 years now. Shortly I first started in the industry the building crash of the mid 80's I saw a real effect. Since then I've learned what it takes to keep working through the so called slower times and gotten good at what I do therefore there is a demand for my services. That's not to say there isn't a slowing econ it just hasn't effected me, yet. I've got friends all over the country and some of them say they have felt it.
