HOUSTON, TX - Congrats Houston! We made a top ten list, and even better - we beat Dallas!

Houston came in number 9 in Bloomberg’s Top Richest Cities in America, passing up poor Dallas that came in at number 11.

The rankings are based on gross metropolitan product, or just how much economic activity a certain city creates.

If you`re not seeing the riches, that might be explained by another Bloomberg list; the Ten Most Unequal Big Cities in America. The money in Houston is less evenly distributed than the national average.

Whatever... We`re still beating Dallas.
