Trivia Tidbit of the Day: Part 789 -- Best Cities For Job Growth.

Texas-

Out of 397 cities studied nationally, 26 are in Texas. 10 of those 26 cities performed in the top 10% of all cities. 21 of the 26 performed in the top 25% of all cities.

Four of the top 12 overall cities are in Texas:

Of large-sized cities, Texas cities took first place, second place, and third place, and 5 of the top 7:

Of medium-sized cities, 3 of the top 7 cities are in Texas:

Of small-sized cities, 2 of the top 4 are in Texas:

This is truly a national recession, as only 13 cities out of 397 showed any growth whatsoever in 2009:

During volatile times, places with the broad-based growth strategies -- like Texas and Utah -- do best. Cities that are heavily dependent on a narrow set of industries leave themselves vulnerable, paying back the gains of good years in poor years.

Part of the success of Texas is not just energy (as the modest performance of Midland and Odessa shows), but rather to the state’s adjustments to a past crisis, the savings and loan crisis of the 1980s.

Ideas matter. Policies matter. Let's pay attention to results and put more successful conservatives in, kick more failing liberals out.
