HOUSTON, Texas -- Business is booming and companies are hiring in Texas. As a result, the state is home to the fastest growing cities in the nation. New York Times' columnist Paul Krugman recently penned an op-ed called "Wrong Way Nation," in which he attempted to downplay the factors causing Americans from around the country to pack up and move to Texas every month. Portraying the state in a wholly negative light, Krugman boiled down the migration pattern to one factor alone: cheaper housing costs in Texas. But the economist failed to consider other factors that bring flocks of Americans to the Lone Star State including immense job growth, low unemployment, lax regulation, and low taxes.
