Cautious Optimism For Once-Booming Texas Economy

Texas Real Estate Center

Dr. Dale Funderburk, Northeast Texas economist, reflects on the cautiously optimistic assessment of the Texas economy by the Dallas Federal Reserve Bank.  The report shows a strong resurgence of manufacturing activity in Texas, but employment is a highly variable picture from city to city.  While oil prices are surging, the cause may be lower supply due to more restructive regulations, Dr. Funderburk says.
