Texas leads the nation in economic growth and international trade. Were Texas a country, it would have the world’s 10th-largest economy—a ranking achieved in no small part by the state’s deep involvement in international trade. Specialization and trade are drivers of modern economies that apply to capital and labor. Local, national, and international trade provide the ability for more extensive specialization, and each is an important component of Texas’ economy.
