"... The facilities would cost SpaceX about $80 million to build, Mr. Salinas said, though SpaceX did not confirm that figure. He estimates that developing the site would inject $50 million in annual salaries into Brownsville’s economy and add $20 million to $30 million per year in related costs." Overpaid windbag Gilberto Salinas, the executive vice president of the Brownsville Economic Development Council, quoted in (gasp!) The New York Times on the projected impact of Space X on the local economy. “It would just totally change the way things are done down here.” Mmmm. How are things done down here now?
