Newscast Media HOUSTON, Texas—As we ring in the new year, we will take a look at the Texaplex, and why it is so fascinating. The Texaplex is made up of Houston, Austin, Dallas-Fort Worth and San Antonio.


Texas as a state, grosses over $100 billion dollars in trade with foreign nations.  If Texas were a country, it would have the world's 11th largest economy.  Its annual economic output alone exceeds $1 trillion and still growing. What makes Texas unique is that most Texans go to school to get an education so they can apply their skills to create their own jobs or businesses.  This makes Texas the United States' largest exporter of goods to other nations worldwide.


As for size, the saying is true: "Everything is bigger in Texas."  You could literally fit the entire world's population (7 billion people) in Texas, and every single man, woman and child would enjoy more than 1,100 square feet of space to themselves. The rest of the world would be empty. What!


In other words, a family of four, (mother, father and two children) could live in a space of 1100 sq. feet, and have an additional (3X1100) 3,300 square feet for a garden. So don't buy the "over-population" myth that is often peddled around by those who make-believe the world is running out of space.


The video below highlights why everyone is talking about Texas, the Lone Star State.




 Austin, Texas: Is not only an innovator in technology but is also known as the "Live music capital" of the world. Dallas, Texas: Has the 4th highest concentration of billionaires in the entire world.  San Antonio has the world's largest marine adventure water park. As for my beloved city of Houston, it is the world's energy capital and also leads the world in the sciences and medical breakthroughs.



Houston is the fourth largest city in the U.S. in terms of population. However, in terms of size, the city of Houston itself is 600 square miles, and perhaps the largest in the world, enough to comfortably fit in the cities of Miami, New York, Washington D.C., Boston, San Francisco, Seattle and Minneapolis.  That's one heckuva monster...and it continues to expand in every direction.
