Chapter 7 - Dwellings
The Gospels are full of houses. They are mentioned seemingly at all times and in all books. The disciples had them. Jesus’ friends had them, as did his enemies. Everyone but Jesus himself seemed to have one.
Donald Trump certainly is famous for his dwellings – and achieved much of his wealth through their building. He currently lives in perhaps the most famous house of them all: The White House. Building homes is the family business, though the Trumps have certainly diversified. This particular section of the Trump and the Gospels study seems, therefore, particularly prescient somehow.
From an economics standpoint it would seem pretty obvious that homebuilding, like today, was a cornerstone of economic activity. As is seen in the chapters on labor and produced goods it is also apparent that tools and jobs were abundant in the home building sector, if you will.
