Texas Economy Rolls On - Detailed In Updated Texaplex Video

David Winans of Better Homes and Gardens DFW follows up his popular 2008 Texaplex video with an update that reveals how the shifting US demographics and the Texas economy have The Lone Star State positioned for a bright future.

Just a few of the exciting facts you'll find in the new Texaplex video:

·     Nearly half of all new jobs, since 2009, we’re created in Texas.

·     The annual economic output of Texas exceeds 1 trillion dollars, and that number is climbing.

·     If the entire 7 billion population of the world moved to Texas, there would be more than 1100 sq feet for      every man, woman, and child on the planet. That’s 4.5%  more space than what New York City dwellers are  already used to.

In the 2010 census, Texas had over 25 million residents. But by 2030, Texas will grow to 40 million residents. That’s like unloading four jumbo jets every day—for the next 19 years, and no one has a return flight. 

Watch this very informative video here.
