Crown Heights flooded with hundreds of teenagers from all over the world.

I am at awe of those Shluchim that can connect with teenagers. Dealing with one's own teenagers is enough of a challenge.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Much easier dealing with someone else's.

Possibly, but nonetheless a major challenge.

For this reason, there are plenty letters from the Rebbe to parents, that they should get outsiders to help

Heartwarming acknowledgment of a fact that I haven't previously seen stated in those words, was projected on the wall of the JCM over the past weekend:

How does your state fare?
This seems like a really simplified argument. Only the revenue side is examined, not the spending side. Government spending per capita is not proven to be a measure of inefficiency in the article, it's just assumed.

And if it was really true that higher state tax burdens are pushing wealth out of some states in favor of others, there would be strong evidence of that happening in large numbers already. The gap between low and high tax burden states is not a new thing that just popped up in the last 5 years. It's always been true that there are high and low states - people want to live in those states for other reasons.

Is this a pro or con?
And what's the average in the real Jewish areas?

Are you a buyer or a seller?

But more accurately and on a serious note, the huge (percentage) fluctuations from month to month can only mean that there's not much transaction volume going on to smooth things.

Here's what I've always been curious about - putting aside property costs, how does it cost that much less to build a house in CLE - in terms of labor and materials?

Do we know that it does?
What is the cost per sq ft of high quality building elsewhere?

Cost of Labor is much lower. I'm sure regulatory expenses are much lower too. Every new house built in NYC needs sprinklers today.  Sidewalk sheds required on every project. Adds significant cost. Materials allowed also add to price. In NYC up until about 10 years ago you couldnt use Pex piping for plumbing.
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.
