Growth Trends in the Metroport Cities: Implications for Traffic Congestion, the 'Funnel', and DFW Airport

Growth Trends in the Metroport Cities: Implications for Traffic Congestion, the 'Funnel', and DFW Airport

Date: January 2000
Creator: Weinstein, Bernard L. & Clower, Terry L.
Description: This report, by the University of North Texas Center for Economic Development and Research, discusses the issues involved with population growth in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. It suggests that the tremendous population, employment and traffic growth expected over the next two decades, in tandem with anticipated passenger and cargo expansions at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, will make the funnel virtually impassable, unless new roadways and interchanges are constructed that can separate commuters from airport-bound traffic. What's more, the potential for DFW to become the world's premier commercial gateway may be imperiled if steps aren't taken quickly to improve road access for passengers and shippers. With the ongoing explosion of domestic and international commerce, improving ground access to DFW Airport has become an economic development imperative for the region, state and nation.

The Impact of Higher Natural Gas Prices on the Texas Economy

The Impact of Higher Natural Gas Prices on the Texas Economy

Date: July 2000
Creator: Weinstein, Bernard L. & Clower, Terry L.
Description: This report, by the University of North Texas Center for Economic Development and Research, discusses the economic effect of rising gas prices on the Texas economy. It surmises that although rising natural gas prices are a boon to gas drilling, production and distribution industries and their employees, the resulting higher costs to Texas industries and households more than offset any gains. Each $1 per MCF increase in the price of natural gas - if sustained - has the net effect of decreasing state economic activity by at least $3.4 billion per year, lowering total employment by more than 34,000, and reducing salaries and wages by $911 million.

Thinking Strategically about Economic Development in Dallas: Why a High-Wage Recruitment Strategy Makes Sense

Thinking Strategically about Economic Development in Dallas: Why a High-Wage Recruitment Strategy Makes Sense

Date: December 2003
Creator: Weinstein, Bernard L. & Clower, Terry L.
Description: The Dallas/Fort Worth Metropolitan Area, along with most other regions of the country, has witnessed some tough economic times. Telecom layoffs, the aftermath of the September 11th terrorist attacks, and the national economic downturn have reduced the region's employment by about 100,000 since 2000. Dallas' current economic stress is best evidenced by its declining per capita income. Still, as this report illustrates, even allowing for the region's current economic vicissitudes, the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex has been one of the most dynamic urban areas in the nation since 1990 and this report presents the information surrounding these topics with the figures and data found by the University of North Texas Center for Economic Development and Research.
