I know the poor folks that don't live in Texas get tired of those of us that do bragging about how we're the best, greatest, highest, on whatever the subject at hand might be. Okay, so we need to ignore education, funding for social services, and the like, but for conservative, pro-business types we can truly brag that it is the best place to be for business - low cost of living, central time zone, great climate (sans July & August), amazing airport, on and on.
So here is a little more proof as if any more were needed. The Dallas Fort Worth area created more jobs than anywhere else in the nation with Houston coming in second place. The two created 134,200 jobs in the last 12 months with 83,100 of those in DFW. For the full article you can link to it here.
But wait, there's more. Texas GDP (gross domestic product) is expected to rise by 3.7% for 2011 as predicted by BBVA Compass Bank. That's compared to 3% for the nation as a whole. Here is a link to that full article.
So until next time, let's review. Texas is great. You should live here. Move your company here. Okay, so that wasn't a review. Some of that was new.
Oh, and Go Rangers & Go Mavs!
