How economic diversity evolved in Dallas and Fort Worth – the story of maturing markets.

As industries expand and retrench, markets evolve. Economic diversity is valuable because it cushions the volatility that can come from relying on a single industry (think Pittsburgh and steel in the 1970s).

Today, Dallas is benefiting from its economic maturity, driven by a variety of industries like technology, telecommunications, financial services, insurance and logistics.

Fort Worth’s economy has also changed dramatically from the oil boom days of the 1980s. Even though energy and defense remain drivers, Fort Worth is a much more balanced economy.
