Businesspeople Upbeat At Dallas Gathering

Wall Street may be on life support, but business/financial types in Dallas are upbeat and out there hustling for new deals. That was the takeaway from D CEO magazine’s 3Q Happy Hour last night at Bentley Dallas, where more than 250 movers and shakers gathered–on a Monday night, yet–to celebrate the mag’s newsmakers like Carol Reed. (The GOP-leaning political strategist, by the way, was sounding decidedly sour on Sarah Palin.) Noteworthy among the big crowd–many were members of the Dallas Dealmakers group–were W.B. McDonald of M7, a commercial real estate brokerage (shown at left in this Marty Perlman photo, with Jasmine Bouyer of Richards Partners); commercial real estate whiz Susan Arledge; David Houston of Western Reserve, a Dallas hedge fund; and Mary A. Burnham of Prodigy Oil & Gas. Houston–who’s no relation, by the way, to the great C&W singer with the same name–was heard blaming much of Wall Street’s woes on unfairly applied accounting rules. Then everybody had another Stella.

    hmmm unfairly applied accounting rules… that sounds familiar….. flipping through mental calendar….oh yes, the same thing that took down the savings and loan industry back in the day…. something about liquidity to back up debt?
