I recall when Boeing threw out the bidding to make their hub: Chicago, Denver, Dallas -- because they wanted to be closer to flying east. Everybody fell all over themselves but as I recall it there weren't really ALL THAT MANY JOBS coming with them - most of their production facilities remain in the Pac-West, right?
The rich get richer. If Chicago doesn't give them that deal, they get it from Denver or Dallas. Texas wouldn't have even gotten individual income tax.
