Economic globalization is prompting a new geographical entity throughout the world, the megaregion. As the global economy becomes more competitive, states and areas that have megaregions will lead the way. Across the country, these areas will have the tools and resources to attract talent, companies, and jobs. Texas has the Texas Triangle Megaregion (Austin, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Houston, and San Antonio) and was identified by the University of Pennsylvania as one of the ten emerging megaregions in the United States. Since 1895, Austin has grown each year by 3.5%. That means every 20 years Austin has doubled in population. The City of Austin is planning for a steady 3.5% population growth and expects the population to double again by 2035. As Austin attracts people and businesses with its lower business and living cost, quality of life, and progressive culture, Central Texas will see tremendous growth and opportunity in the coming years.
