Economic liberty is why the Lone Star State leads in job creation and in population growth over the last 10 years and why personal incomes have risen almost twice as fast in Texas compared to New York and well ahead of California.
The Lone Star State reports its 14th consecutive month of growth.
The Texas economy expanded with the addition of 5,500 seasonally adjusted nonfarm jobs in August. Texas’ seasonally adjusted unemployment rate fell to 4.2 percent, down from 4.3 percent in July. Annual employment growth for Texas was 2.5 percent, which was more than double the annual growth rate set the previous year.
