Leppert’s Surprising Views On The Dallas Economy

Shameless Plug Department: How’s Dallas faring from a business/economic standpoint? Mayor Tom Leppert has some surprising views in a straight-from-the-shoulder interview in the new issue of our D CEO magazine. The mayor, for example, doubts that we’ll ever rival Boston or San Francisco’s Bay Area as a “biotech” hub; at the same time, he reveals he’s working behind the scenes to lure more consulates from Europe, Asia, and the Middle East to Dallas. Read his take on the local economy and much more here–or pick up a copy of the February CEO at Borders or Barnes & Noble. Heck, Leppert might even deliver one to you if you ask.

    We could be a major biotech hub, just a Des Moines is a major insurance hub, and Charlotte is a banking hub, but it will take a real government effort to do so. That effort would have to come from the state and local governments creating very favorable tort, tax, and regulation laws for the biotech industry.

    Hold that carrot out there far enough, they will come.
