CEOs Rank Texas No. 1 For Business; Is NAFTA A Major Reason?

Texas A&M Real Estate Center

Texas A&M-Commerce economics professor and the interim dean of the College of Business Dr. Dale Funderburk considers a recent survey of CEO Magazine readers that ranks Texas as the no. 1 state for business in the U.S.  Meanwhile, a recent article in the Austin American-Statesman urges making improvements upon NAFTA, rather than scrapping it. Dr. Funderburk agrees, saying NAFTA is a major reason why business is booming in Texas.
