As we all know, Houston is doing better than most cities in the country. KHOU reports:
â€œHouston is leading the nation in job growth rate,â€ economist Patrick Jankowski with the Greater Houston Partnership said.
â€œWeâ€™re growing faster than any of the other major metropolitan areas in the U.S.,â€ he said.
He said even if there is a recession, Houstonâ€™s economy could weather it well.
â€œThe strength in the oil and gas industry and the weakness in the dollar are going to moderate whatever effect a recession might have on the economy.
Good to know.
There’s an interesting article in the Houston Chronicle about microlending in Houston. Specifically about “AcciÃ³n Texas, a nonprofit lender that provides microloans to startups or entrepreneurs with a less-than-perfect credit history.” It’s worth a read.
