The Commercial Melting Pot - 20th Century Texas Business


During World War II, Texas experienced enormous economic growth; business was booming and urban society flourished as more Texans began to migrate into cities. After the War, oil and gas production increased, and Texas banks woked with East Coast banks to finance new businesses in the state. As a result of the economic expansion experienced during this period, Texas businesses, in a variety of commercial fields, grew at a rapid rate and brought additional economic surplus to the state.
