Cindy Crawford: Magic City Marketplace
Birmingham is finally seeing a post-recession rebound in construction with cranes dotting the city center and apartments and medical facilities going up elsewhere. But there’s a problem looming for construction firms — labor shortages. We talk about it in this week’s Magic City Marketplace.
Birmingham is big business and small. But whatever the size of the operation, the marketplace is connected by people who have to grapple with numbers and projections and spin. We try and slice through the psychobabble that can be business news with a weekly discussion of who's up and who's down, why the market reacts a certain way or what a business closing or opening means to you.
