Forbes: Dallas Is a Boom Town

All those bums at Main Street Garden had best watch out, because Dallas isn’t going to have any room for them soon enough. An alert FrontBurnervian points us to a Forbes study that ranks the nation’s next boom towns. Four of the top 10 cities are in Texas, with Dallas coming in at No. 7. Joel Kotkin writes:

Of course, Texas metropolitan areas feature prominently on our list of future boom towns, including No. 4 San Antonio, No. 5 Houston and No. 7 Dallas, which over the past years boasted the biggest jump in new jobs, over 83,000. Aided by relatively low housing prices and buoyant economies, these Lone Star cities have become major hubs for jobs and families. And there’s more growth to come. With its strategically located airport, Dallas is emerging as the ideal place for corporate relocations.
