Texas finds cover from U.S. economic storm
AbstractThe 2007 Texas expansion was persistently underrated. While a national economic slowdown attracted headlines, the state's economy quietly grew at a rate that was Texas proud. ; State job growth of 3.1 percent last year was triple the nation's 1 percent - and exceeded the state's long-run average of 2.8 percent for the third year in a row. While declines in homebuilding were sizable, overall construction remained at high levels in Texas. Oil and gas drilling returned to heights not seen since the early 1980s energy boom.
