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.

An Overview of the Dallas-Fort Worth Area's Long-Term Water and Transportation Needs

An Overview of the Dallas-Fort Worth Area's Long-Term Water and Transportation Needs

Date: March 2004
Creator: Weinstein, Bernard L. & Clower, Terry L.
Description: This report gives an overview of the Dallas-Fort Worth area's long-term water and transportation needs. Recognizing the importance of a reliable long-term water supply, the Dallas/Fort Worth region has invested heavily in reservoirs and transmission facilities over the past 50 years. Indeed, the dramatic population and employment growth enjoyed by the Metroplex over the past several decades would not have occurred absent an abundant and reliable supply of fresh water for residential and commercial uses. Despite the foresightedness of the region's leaders, according to the Texas Water Development Board the region may soon find itself facing a water deficit. This report, by the University of North Texas Center for Economic Development and Research, examines the implications of the DFW area's long-term water and transportation needs.

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.
