During the first half of the nineteenth century, “Gone to Texas” was a popular phrase used by Americans immigrating to Texas for economic opportunity and hope to make a fortune. As the Americans came west, en masse, they brought money to invest, and built wealth that circulated to the furthest Texas frontiers.
During the first half of the twenty first century, Texas remains a place for economic opportunity and hope to make a fortune. Today, Texas is a place where the rule of law allows anyone to manifest their greatest potential and fulfill their dreams. Texas attracts business by maintaining predictable regulation, an expanding consumer base, low tax rates, and a legal system that allows the mitigation of legal risks. Anybody from anywhere can come to Texas and seek their fortune.
Texas has the highest volume and concentration of new business investment in the United States, and maintains a rate of economic growth of over twice the national average. En masse, Americans are coming from California and every other U.S. state to enjoy the business-friendly environment to build businesses and new ideas, to move up in their careers, or simply to get a job or to get out of debt. It is not just Americans flooding Texas with wealth. Texas has more immigrants from Asia and Latin America starting businesses than any other state. Texas has more individuals receiving investors’ visas than any other state.
Mexico is no exception. Texas has a long history of being attractive to Mexican investors due to the overlap of physical infrastructure with Mexico and established cultural ties among hundreds of thousands of families and businesses. Today, recent legal and tax reforms in Mexico are leaving huge amounts of money uninvested in the Mexican economy. As the regulations to implement reforms are slowly established, Mexican corporations and business owners are establishing growth strategies. Much of the money has gone to Texas, and is generating new wealth.
Despite the welcoming business environment of the State of Texas, there are pitfalls, and very expensive costs for unwary businesses without corporate counsel. Fortunately, a business can avoid substantial risks and costs, and effectively compete with proper planning catered to its operations, relationships and goals. However, commercial and corporate governance is a fairly specialized area, and new businesses must select and work with business attorneys who are experienced in commercial, employment and intellectual property law matters.
