plumber2 Posted November 22, 2014 Share Posted November 22, 2014 Higher education in combination with biomedicine and other disciplines (engineering, material science, nanotech, etc.) would greatly benefit Houston. I imagine it would take awhile to get on Boston, NYC, or the Bay Area's level, but we could certainly become a second tier city in a decade or so if we invest in it. Most optimistically, the COH can reign in it's pension problem and translate that into more infrastructure spending and/or lower taxes. We pass a few bonds that focus on providing funds for academic buildings and dense multi-unversity student housing; Or just pray Rice decides to double it's entire student and teacher population over 2 decades. How can you reign in pension obligations without cheating someone out of what they had earned and been promised? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
