construction degree programs while the Accreditation Board for Engineering & Technology (ABET) accredits construction engineering and construction technology programs. In there were 43 ACCE accredited programs.

There are also six construction engineering programs, and about 45 construction technology programs accredited by ABET. Overall employment of construction laborers and helpers is projected to grow 5 percent from tofaster than the average for all occupations. Construction laborers work in all fields of construction, and demand for laborers should mirror the level of overall construction activity.

Accurate demand forecasting is essential for a firm to enable it to produce the required quantities at the right time and arrange well in advance for the various factors of production e.g., raw materials, equipment, machine accessories etc.

According to theories by supply-side economics, trickle-down economics, and the Laffer Curve, tax cuts on businesses and the wealthy drive the economy towards growth.
