It is about the defunding of higher education and the failure to invest in the next generation of workers, taxpayers, and homebuyers.

In other words, soak the producers and "spread the wealth around" to the looters. Sure, that's just the ticket to restore California.

And to think that USC used to be a rather Conservative university, where genuine learning existed. That's receding into a very dim, long ago past.

The main threat in California isn’t about business climate or the types of homes being built. It is about the defunding of higher education...

Awww, isn't that cute?

The Perfesser wants a raise.

The first step to fixing a problem is admitting you have one.

The doomsayer critics playing with demographics typically cite three reasons for the state’s woes: Business taxes are too high, development regulations are too strict, and planners are dictating lifestyles that people don’t want.

Yep.

Meanwhile, the people of California wonder if some of these claims are true.

Only the ones that are still there and haven't started planning their egress yet.

This professor is trying to convince citizens of rainy weather on a sunny day while pissing on their leg. I'm waiting for some of the establishment politicians in CA start blaming talk radio for the bad press and mass exodus. Oh wait....

He doesn't see ANY correlation between the numbers of people and business going away and the states fiscal and regulatory policies? None? Really? He's a professor of what again?

The “makers” are bailing out.

The establishment “takers” have dug themselves in and have a death grip on the state treasury.

Meanwhile the population continues to climb as non-english speaking moochers still pour across the border and spawn anchor babies by the thousands.

No one has the guts to do what needs to be done.

California will end up becoming a federal government basket case and receive a multi-trillion dollar bailout. That will enable them to continue the insanity for a few more years.

I left late last year — and I was born and raised in California.

This is the worst (best?) job of whistling past the graveyard I have ever read. It isn’t even backed up by facts (most people are fleeing to Texas, not Nevada).

There are more people in the cart than pulling it. The more they raise taxes the fewer people will be pulling the cart (plenty of people to clamber in to get the free stuff, though).

>>This giant state has an economy that is equivalent in production to the eighth-largest nation in the world.

True, but before the Rats took control, California had an economy that was equivalent to the fifth-largest nation in the world.

Golden? More like jaundiced. CA has just about made its last lap around the bowl.

More power to CA if it somehow becomes stable, financially.

As for retention of native born, there are plenty of immigrant and welfare births in the 1980s. They get beneifits beyond anywhere else. Why would they move?

The retention rate is symptom of the financial instability, not despite it.

If and when CA becomes stable, local born will leave and out of staters will come back.
