The rate of house building is slowing down, with some major builders planning to build fewer homes this year.
Economic warning signs, such as the yield curve in the USA inverting and bank downgrades, suggest a potential economic downturn.
"We've said for a little while that we can see that the economy is slowing down, despite all these BS numbers that we're being fed."
