New York Times columnist David Brooks’s column of October 14, 2014, is about diversity and polarization in America. He compares the San Francisco Bay Area and Houston, showing that two very different regional models can be successful.
The column generated over 300 responses. George Baker, who moved his business from Oakland to Houston in 1996, offers his observations. One of these is that, in Houston, companies in the energy, medical and arts hire globally (the director of the Houston symphony is from Colombia); Pemex, in contrast, hires employees from only one nationality.
