I don't know which businesses specifically and if they moved between 2000-2015, but the high tech sector in Austin particularly (I don't know if Houston also) has been attracting a lot of "blue" workers.
CA used to be red also. Only a matter of time for TX to flip because of the influx from CA to TX.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

SXSW has been happening since 1987. IINM, the vast majority of Austin's tech scene is homegrown. People may be moving there to start businesses, but I don't know that a lot of companies have moved there and brought employees with them.

Tons of tech companies have started moving to Texas, specifically Austin.

Polls (for what they are worth) show that transplants to TX are more likely to be conservative that natives.

The point is, TX has been purple for a little bit now, and that trend started a while back. Can't blame some companies fleeing NY and CA for that.

Pendulums swing in two directions, right now it's swinging in the direction of making NY worse. At some point, it will turn around (after enough rot and decay have settled in) and NY will come back. As long as I have kids in school, I ain't moving.
I'm afraid we've begun a death spiral.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Creative destruction?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Another thing is that companies are coming to realize how easy and accepting it is to work from home/remotely so that will probably effect the NY market a lot negatively.

This is not the opinion of ANY manager I have spoken to. Not even one.

The question is if the cost in lost productivity is less than the savings from not paying for office space.

That would be a question of lost productivity by using suburban office space according to those I've spoken to. They all have ZERO plans on staying remote. A small chance of partial remote but even that is unlikely.
