A NEW ECONOMIC BACKDROP FOR HOUSTON FOCUS OF NOV. 14 IRF SYMPOSIUM

Energy has been the driver of the Houston economy for the last decade, cushioning it from the recession and giving it a resiliency that is uncommon among America’s major metropolitan regions.

But according to Robert W. “Bill” Gilmer, director of the Institute for Regional Forecasting (IRF) at the University of Houston’s C. T. Bauer College of Business, Houston’s energy industry is slowing down.

“That energy surge is increasingly behind us now,” Gilmer said in a preview of the presentation he plans to give at the IRF’s Nov. 14 fall symposium. “The good news is that the U.S. economy is finally ready to step up.”
