Our goal is the help our readers figure out how the day's news actually affects them and their business. Short, punchy, and easy-to-read, the Analysts Briefings are not breaking the news. Instead, they contextualize what's happening in the built world, and parse out why what's happening is important and what sort of impact it will have.
