Houston tops global city outlook, GDP, and brand rankings; 100 years of zoning now smothering the economy, and more

Back after some summer vacation time with a lot of smaller items to catch-up on:
"One can never be certain about these things, but it’s quite possible that excessive land-use restrictions are among the major causes of our long national economic malaise."
This is part of why presidents and the federal government are having so much trouble reviving the economy - the regulations causing the problem are outside of their control.
Finally, it's way too big to fit here, but an interesting and amusing infographic you might want to check out:  "If Texas Were a Storage Unit, What Countries Would Fit Inside?"  It will give you a new appreciation for just how big Texas is.
