Energy and the Economy – Insights from Comerica’s Chief Economist – Robert Dye, PHD
In a recent story about Texas’s job loss numbers, Robert A. Dye, chief economist for Dallas-based Comerica Bank stated,
“This is a clear red flashing light for Texas. Oil prices obviously are affecting the Texas economy. We see that through the very weak job numbers. Not only are jobs directly in the energy sector at risk, but also jobs in other parts of the economy.”
