Houston, business, economy, industry, growth

A study by the Brookings Institution, a non-profit, non-partisan public policy organization, titled “The Global Metro Monitor” for 2011 reveals the Houston economy to be the fastest growing major metropolitan area in North America.

Houston ranked as the 19th fastest growing city worldwide in 2011. The only other North American city to appear on the top-40 list was Dallas, which ranked at 36.

The report cited not only the obvious booming energy business as a primary reason the Houston regional economy grew at such a strong rate, but also the city’s diverse economy.
