BBVA Compass Chief Economist Nathaniel Karp and his team examine a number of factors they say will have a big influence on the game's ultimate economic impact, including local residents' spending and the "crowding out" effect, where some residents may opt to leave town to avoid crowds and congestion. Karp and team say Houston's lower relative prices, lower population density and lack of zoning restrictions will help increase the positive economic impact on the city, but the biggest benefits may be the intangible ones that bear out over the long term. "In terms of the intangibles, the biggest short-term upside is the opportunity to showcase a modern, vibrant and cosmopolitan city, which would dramatically alter the perception for many visitors that think of Houston as a hot, humid and heavily congested concrete jungle," the economists write.

HOUSTON, Dec. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- BBVA Compass' idea to improve access to banking has been introduced in the House of Representatives in the form of HR 6287, also known as the MOBILE Act. The bill would bring consistency to various state laws that limit a bank's ability to use an image of a state-issued identification card for the purposes of opening an account via a mobile phone or online. BBVA Compass and other financial institutions have developed apps to help clients open up accounts without having to visit a branch or office, but there are roadblocks in fully implementing those services, according to BBVA Compass Head of Mobile and Online Channels Alex Carriles.
