Slate Shows The Growing Recession In Dallas

Slate has posted an extraordinary way to view the recession’s effects on unemployment since January, 2007. Push the green arrow and keep your eyes on the Dallas area. While the rest of the country is getting hit, our jobs continue to grow, then the growth becomes slower, then stalls until December, 2008 — then wham!

Texas exceptionalism was, I regret to report, a temporary phenonmenon. The ABC News/Forbes list I posted yesterday was not as up-to-date as Slate’s.

    Look at the job gains in Pima, AZ! What the heck is going on out there??

    Claiming Texas exceptionalism dead is bit premature. There’s still an awful lot of blue in our state at the end of that animation. Especially when you look at the red dominating the coasts and the midwest.
