The ATX

Austin Economy/Culture/Growth/Whatever

So what is the local view of whether Austin will win Amazon HQ2?  What do you think your chances are really?  I still think Amazon has a much shorter list they are working from but by creating a shorter list the incentive race will go nuclear. 

How do you feel about Dallas's chances?

There are boosters in every one of the 20 finalist cities/areas that think they have a lock on HQ2.  Austin has boosters as well.  But I don't think the boosterism is as over the top as it in other cities.  Frankly, if it was up to the voters, HQ2 would lose in a land slide.  This city has become anti-growth - even the city council.
