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.
