  • Austin-area expectations high heading into holiday shopping season

    02 December
    2014

    Angelos sat down with Community Impact to discuss Austin-area retail market trends heading into the holiday season. Angelos expects that Travis County will see even higher retail sales in 2014. September sales taxes "increased 10 percent compared with September 2013, suggesting momentum is high heading into the holiday shopping season for both retailers and the seasonal employees likely to be hired to handle the extra shoppers." "Austin benefits from a 3.5 percent annual population increase," he said, "while the rest of the country is growing at a 1 percent rate." According to Angelos, “those new residents coming from other states are definitely counted among the new shoppers in Austin.”

  • Angelos’ Analysis on Employment Makes International Impression

    13 February
    2014

    The analysis and observations that AngelouEconomics founder Angelos Angelou made during his annual forecast event led to an interview that was picked up by numerous news outlets, including many international groups. The observation that the projected Dell layoffs could be absorbed by Apple and other major tech firms seemed to resonate across the board. It is a prediction that is squarely supported by the recent statistic that Texas has surpassed California as the leading technology exporter in the US. And though there are major industry players throughout the state, including Texas Instruments in Dallas, the Central Texas/Austin area has seen expansive growth and investment in recent years totalling a higher impact than the Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio regions combined, and this diversified growth also shows no signs of stopping. However it seemed that the revalation that Apple's expanding presence has the potential to offset and absorb many of the forthcoming Dell cuts was apparently the tantalizing detail that created the international buzz. In the end it is merely a sign that the strengthening economy has the capacity to withstand the necessary re-organizations that are occuring in the tech sector. That is a good thing, because on another front it was also revealed that Apple is now globally outselling all PC manufacturers combined.
