I think the powers that be evaluated the recession and lost jobs and realize that new jobs will be in a new industry. The lost jobs, for the most part, will be be returning. The market is switching to new industries and the country as a whole will be going in a new direction with jobs. Certainly some of the lost jobs will be refilled when things perk up, but new industries will be born, like cyber and recycleing. Texas did not suffer as much as the rest of the country. I think the cyber industry saved Texas from the recession.

The cyber industry didn't save Texas from the recession, it was a mix of things. A larger reason was the state being comparatively business friendly in general, which means that if new industries and jobs are popping up, they're more likely to pop up here than in a state that's less business friendly.

I think BRAC is playing a bigger part then the growing cyber mission in softening the blow of the current recession.
