Texas and jobs: The Lone Star State is a jobs engine
July 5, 2011 |
You know, job creation is not rocket science. Economics is not really all that complicated, once you understand a few things:
1. People create jobs, not governments
2. If government were to simply get out of the way of the people, they would start businesses who will create jobs
So really the process is:
1. Reduce taxes and regulation at every level in order to make it easier for people to start businesses
2. If the businesses grow, they create jobs
End of story. Not rocket science at all. And the numbers speak for themselves. The simplicity of this leads me to believe that the Democrats and the Obama administration are not stupid, since everyone can understand this. So they must want high unemployment.
For the last few weeks, I’ve been unable to get a startling statistic out of my head: Since the recession officially ended, Texas has created more than 4 of every 10 new jobs in America.
That’s right, Texas: the reddest of red states, home to gun lovers and school textbooks that openly question whether the Founding Fathers intended for the separation of church and state. I am no ideologue. Still, whenever I get political, I tend to tilt reflexively to the left, making the jobs figure a bit disconcerting at first.
