The Overhang of Structures before and since the Great Recession

Margaret Jacobson and Filippo Occhino ()

Economic Commentary, 2014, issue March

Abstract: Investment in structures is still 29 percent below its pre-recession peak. Using a new indicator of the level of structures that would be warranted by economic conditions, we find evidence that the level of investment was too high in the first half of the 2000s. This overinvestment created an overhang of structures which has held down the growth of investment in structures during the recovery.
