How an Economic Boom Can Run Out the Clock
Australia’s 27-year stretch of growth offers lessons for U.S policy makers
Since 1854, the U.S. has experienced 34 expansions, lasting from 10 months to 120. The current one, in its 10th year, is already longer than all but the one of the 1990s.
Australia is experiencing an amazing economic run—a 27-year expansion that survived a regional economic crisis in the 1990s, a global economic crisis in the 2000s, and a boom-boost cycle in its core commodity sector in the 2010s.

Required Notice to Raise Rent on a Month-to-Month Lease– It’s Not 7 Days Anymore!
For decades Colorado landlords could terminate unwritten month-to-month leases upon 7 days notice. This law was recently changed to require at least 21 days notice. Many landlords haven’t realized that the new law did more than change notice requirements for termination. The new law also requires that month-to-month landlords having no written lease must provide tenants with a 21 day notice before increasing the rent. The law applies not just to month-to-month leases, but to leases between one month and six months.

Despite a recent downturn in the number of people entering the state, Colorado, and Denver in particular, remains a hotbed of migration.

Spring Home Sale Season Shows Signs of a Bust
This month’s report extends a slowdown as sales were down on an annual basis for three straight months
By Laura Kusisto and Sarah Chaney
Updated June 20, 2018 5:19 p.m. ET
A booming economy is providing little boost to the critical spring homebuying season, which is stuck in neutral due to a lack of inventory, high home prices and rising mortgage rates.
Existing home sales have declined compared with a year earlier in four out of the first five months of this year. Sales of previously owned U.S. homes dropped 0.4% in May from the prior month to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.43 million—the second-consecutive month they declined, the National Association of Realtors said Wednes ...

Here's how Denver hopes to ferret out unlicensed short-term rentals
By Monica Vendituoli – Reporter, Denver Business Journal 3 hours ago
Eric Escudero, director of communications for Denver’s Department of Excise and Licenses, said short-term rental licensing enforcement is a top priority for Denver.
“One of the main reasons for enforcing these rules in Denver is this is part of the city’s efforts to slow down the rapid increase in our cost of living,” Escudero said.
The city now has six employees dedicated to short-rental license enforcement, up from one last year.
And Denver is using a software program called Host Compliance to automate its short-term rental enforcemen ...
