f VrV Wlr Huge Building Boom Seen for Next Decade Construction during the next 10 years in this country 13 esumaiea at wen over . twice the total national debt "at the present time, or a : total of $600 billion exclu-j sive of the land, operating equipment and other serv- : ices essential to this activity, according to a projection in ; the current Quarterly Economic Report of the Mort- :gage Bankers Assn. of : America. - Against this huge demand the country is faced with a ,-continued shortage of savings to finance it, the report ; adds. . The projection was made ' in connection with an analy sis of the presently rising interest rates and availability of money to finance all the demands at the present time. At the moment, the present high interest rates give every indication of going still higher before they reach a level of stability. . High Rates "On the basis of the outlook for the demand and supply of funds, the evi-; dence points at least to the : maintenance of what we have come to consider high interest rates," says the report. Actually, says the report, ; the present high interest rates aren't high at all when , viewed in historical perspec-::tive. ;; "From a long-term view, ' interest rates are not inor-: dinately high. If they are ; out of line at all by historical ; comparisons it is on the low ; rather than on the high side. At most times prior to the ; great depression, interest : rates were higher than they ; are now, and they have al- ;ways been higher than at present periods when capital has beenv in jjreat demand, such as the 1880s and. the " 1920s. ... It is the low-interest phase from the mid-19303 to 1950 that is unique in interest rate history rather than the present ascent to moderately high levels. Demand for Funds Principal reason, of course, why rates will continue up is the great future demand for funds. "A heavy demand for funds over a long future period is assured by the vast capital investment that will be required to provide an ad' vancing standard of living for our greatly increased population. More of every type of facility from houses to factories and schools and hos- . pitals will be called for. Individuals, private business and government will, all be heavy users of funds during the years of expansion in the decade ahead. The present comparatively high levels of house building and the now emerging rise in business in vestment are only the faint heraldj of what 1 yet to come. t .
