Supply, Demand, and the Lumber Market
Abstract:An analysis of lumber production and price experience since World War I is presented as the basis for developing a working hypothesis of supply and demand trends. This hypothesis indicates that a long term decline in lumber supply, rather than declining demand, has been a major determinant of past lumber market behavior, and that supply problems are critical for future levels of market activity.
