Texas again has been ranked the top exporting state, according to data released by the U.S. Department of Commerce.
"Texas' ranking as the nation's top exporter for nine years running is a testament to our strong economy and the importance of upholding low taxes, reasonable regulations, a fair legal system and an equipped workforce," Gov. Rick Perry stated in a news release.
Texas' exports in 2010 totaled more than $206.6 billion, up 26.7 percent from $162.9 billion in 2009.
The state's exports outperformed overall U.S. exports, which grew by 20.9 percent in 2010.
The state's top export recipients were Mexico, Canada, China, Brazil and South Korea, which respectively imported $72.3 billion, $18.6 billion, $10.2 billion, $7.1 billion and $6.4 billion in Texas-made goods.

From your link:
"Texas' top exporting industries in 2010 were computers and electronics, chemicals, petroleum and coal, machinery, and transportation equipment."

Gee those all look like mfg type jobs..jobs that PRODUCE something tangible for trade.
Not paper pushers or bit pushers (IT jobs)...not your typical "service type jobs".

Producers MAKE money while consumers SPEND money.

Another interesting tidbit is that Austin is becoming home to CA tech companies as they dip their toes in the water here and open satellite/branch offices and it's for development, not customer service.
The likes of Google, Intel, AMD, Apple, etc are coming to town to test us out. These are good, decent paying jobs. I'm glad to see these types of jobs coming to Austin.

And note that these are jobs that produce products that are continuous in public demand - unlike the Obama jobs of highways and roads, which are temporary in its scope. I'm not saying highway and roads are not important, but you do not build an economy on these types of jobs.

Since we're bragging about averages. Be sure and let them know Texas has the highest percentage of uninsured and pay is about 20% less than the NE and West Coasts.

We've got an apartment, minimum wage job, with no bennys for YOU!

Yee haw!

They're there. They're just cordoned off in Austin, similar to how the nutburgers here are roped off inside Chapel Hill.

90%?

Texas has lots of illegals due to its proximity to the Mexican border,....but, unless you can produce some statistics to back up your statement,.....I'll have to say you're full of sheep dip.

Saudi Arabia also experienced excellent GDP growth due to its oil but that doesn't make it a good place to live.
