I thought we were in a recession. :weird:
We are just maybe not everywhere.:I thought we were in a recession. :weird:
Both, just like in every metro area (including Miami).More cheap suburbs, or smart urban planning?
Very true. Let's just say it's lagniappe... a little extra in our budgets. Louisiana is already expecting $900 million extra, and it's only May. That'll end up being at least a $1.5 billion budget surplus. That on top of las year's 1.5 and 2006's over $2 billion in surplus money. I was joking, by the way, with the Houston bashing.That kind of thinking winds you back in the middle of an oil bust like the 90s when gas was too cheap. Houston will grow either way; It's a metro nearing 6 million people.
Not true. The bottom line is that generally, the South is the only recession-proof place in the US.Texas and Upstate New York are the most recession proof places in the US.
That, and Upstate New York totally bypassed the housing boom in the past.he's right. upstate NY is so bad that it can't get any worse. texas is growing so fast and has a diversified economy with a low cost of living that it would be able to ride out economic uncertainty.
I live IN Katy. Don't come by my house. You're working in the TMC?Texas has one of the most diversified economies of any state in the nation. Even though most people think that Houston's economy is tied to the price of oil, the medical field is nearly equally as big in the city. It is the reason I'm 99% sure we're relocating there later this summer (probably near Katy-don't worry Trae!!:cheers1.
