Rising unemployment, reduced consumer confidence, huge stimulus bills, moribund economy, epic wealth inequality, and an impending election. What is the state of the economy—both nationally and in California? And what can be done through government stimulus, reconsidered tax policy, and innovation to grow and thrive, improve standards of living, and remain competitive as a state in an increasingly competitive market—both here and abroad?
How does California stem the emigration to lower-tax states and increase its attractiveness to businesses and consumers? What do the various economic plans mean for our future? What’s on the ballot? Join experts in economic forecasting and tax policy in a free-wheeling discussion of the troubling data, policy changes worth consideration, and a tax regime that has not been overhauled meaningfully since 1986.
