America surpassed $166 billion in capital investments in 2015, a ten percent growth from the previous year. With almost a third of the inputs coming from Texas, Dallas based real estate investor Marcus Hiles considers his state has not only showed the possibility for sustained long-term economic growth, but has also become important to the successes of the American economy. As Chairman and CEO of Western Rim Properties, Hiles has spent more than thirty years reviewing market tendencies in the quest of making lucrative, strategic property acquisitions. Overall, U.S. capital investment rose $16 billion from 2014; according to a report from multinational firm Ernst & Young. Texas pegged $48.3 billion in business financing, which ranked first in the country, and the Gulf Coast states who are conventional leaders in the energy industry, attracted the highest number of investors for the fifth year in a row. Forty percent of the funds were given to chemical manufacturing facilities, and seventy percent of those were new, liquefied natural gas export compounds. The Lone Star State also outshined in the financial, technology, and professional service fields, as shown by their 38,400 mobile project jobs, the highest number in the nation.
