Great post by Professor Krugman on Cali. First let's set the stage:

"The states, Justice Brandeis famously pointed out, are the laboratories of democracy. And it’s still true. For example, one reason we knew or should have known that Obamacare was workable was the post-2006 success of Romneycare in Massachusetts. More recently, Kansas went all-in on supply-side economics, slashing taxes on the affluent in the belief that this would spark a huge boom; the boom didn’t happen, but the budget deficit exploded, offering an object lesson to those willing to learn from experience.

And there’s an even bigger if less drastic experiment under way in the opposite direction. California has long suffered from political paralysis, with budget rules that allowed an increasingly extreme Republican minority to hamstring a Democratic majority; when the state’s housing bubble burst, it plunged into fiscal crisis."

Disclosure: I (PPKFP) live in Cali and can vouch for the veracity of everything Professor Krugman says. The key turning point was electing Governor Brown who succeeded Arnie (who wasn't that bad) and more importantly finally achieving a supermajority in the Legislature to pass budgets over republican obstruction. The net results was a budget surplus due to a modest (and temporary) wealth tax and increase in the sales tax:

"In 2012, however, Democratic dominance finally became strong enough to overcome the paralysis, and Gov. Jerry Brown was able to push through a modestly liberal agenda of higher taxes, spending increases and a rise in the minimum wage. California also moved enthusiastically to implement Obamacare.

I guess we’re not in Kansas anymore. (Sorry, I couldn’t help myself.)"

For those of you who don't live in Cali, which is a wonderfully diverse place to live, what are the take home lessons?

"So what do we learn from the California comeback? Mainly, that you should take anti-government propaganda with large helpings of salt. Tax increases aren’t economic suicide; sometimes they’re a useful way to pay for things we need. Government programs, like Obamacare, can work if the people running them want them to work, and if they aren’t sabotaged from the right. In other words, California’s success is a demonstration that the extremist ideology still dominating much of American politics is nonsense."

Finally, Professor Krugman has a nice discussion of one of the current challenges in California (along with the drought) which is the rising housing costs. That is worth a read. If you currently own a house (i.e. are somewhat wealthy), then you like the restrictive land-use regulations that prop up your inflated house value. Of course the problem is that the majority of people don't own houses.

California trying to cut water, but is it working?

LOS ANGELES — When Gov. Jerry Brown called on everyone from residents to businesses in California to curb water usage by 20 percent, he told state government to lead by example. Six months after his emergency declaration, many agencies and departments can’t say whether their efforts to conserve water are sufficient because few have been comparing how much water they are using this year to last. Here are five things to know about how state agencies are faring as they try to use less water: CUTS NOT MANDATORY, BUT HAPPENING Brown’s emergency declaration in January didn’t make conservation mandatory and there’s no penalty if state agencies fail to comply. Still, it’s clear that agencies are trying. One easy way to conserve is to limit — or eliminate — landscape irrigation. Agencies with large campuses, such as the Department of State Hospitals, said such cuts were an important source of savings. Another obvious source of waste is leaky pipes and faucets. The California State Prison in Sacramento, which loses about 50,000 gallons of water per day due to leaks, is replacing underground pipes. Several other prisons are doing the same. DATA DILEMMA Tracking water usage across dozens of agencies and departments [...]

Leuren Moret: North American Union, Homeland Insecurity, False Flags and Fukushima Update

Published on Jul 20, 2014
❁ Unification of N. America ❁ Theater of Tension, the Middle East ❁ Fukushima Update❁
Former Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, arrived in Berkeley, California, on September 30, 2014, as the new President of the University of California. Few people supported her appointment and more wondered how she was chosen to be head of the University of California system, including Los Alamos and Livermore Nuclear Weapons Labs. When it was finally revealed that, like Jesuits California Governor Jerry Brown, former Secretary of Defense and CIA Director Leon Panetta, and U.S. Supreme Court Judge Clarence Thomas, Ms. Napolitano was also Jesuit trained. In fact, Brown, Panetta, and Napolitano are all graduates of Santa Clara University, a Jesuit shop school for the Big Boys.

Letter to San Diego Mayor Kevin Falconer
Kevinfaulconer@gmail.com

Copy to  Susan Davis, Congresswoman for district and to Jerry Brown, governor of California.

Sir, 

At what point does the right of one person to be able to hear themselves think, hear themselves speak, hear the responses of others, and enjoy themselves in public venues come second to the right of another using a public loudpeaker system to blast highly offensive ideologies to people who do not want to hear them?

I am sick and tired of the aggressive, insulting, intolerant, offensive words of various Christian evangelists who find any opportunity to use public loudspeakers to broadcast a message we've all more or less heard at some point in our lives. As citizens of any community, we have the right to enjoy ourselves without our enjoyment being impaired because the sound volume drowns out our enjoyment of whatever else is going on.

Since when has religious tolerance meant religious domination of one religion over the lives of other people who do not wish to adhere to that religion? And why do publicly elected figures not do something about it?

Today, at San Diego Comic-Con International, these people once more turned up, this year even louder than the previous years. They posted extremely offensive pictures of abortion on Earth Day at Balboa Park. Each day, they drown out the music and festive joy at Gay Pride. How is it that their highy offensive message must be tolerated by us? Isn't this hate speech?

It's tme it stopped. As the mayor of the San Diego community, I think you need to look at this.

JULY 24, 2014
Paul Krugman

The states, Justice Brandeis famously pointed out, are the laboratories of democracy. And it’s still true. For example, one reason we knew or should have known that Obamacare was workable was the post-2006 success of Romneycare in Massachusetts. More recently, Kansas went all-in on supply-side economics, slashing taxes on the affluent in the belief that this would spark a huge boom; the boom didn’t happen, but the budget deficit exploded, offering an object lesson to those willing to learn from experience. And there’s an even bigger if less drastic experiment under way in the opposite direction. California has long suffered from political paralysis, with budget rules that allowed an increasingly extreme Republican minority to hamstring a Democratic majority; when the state’s housing bubble burst, it plunged into fiscal crisis. In 2012, however, Democratic dominance finally became strong enough to overcome the paralysis, and Gov. Jerry Brown was able to push through a modestly liberal agenda of higher taxes, spending increases and a rise in the minimum wage. California also moved enthusiastically to implement Obamacare. I guess we’re not in Kansas anymore. (Sorry, I couldn’t help myself.) Needless to say, conservatives predicted doom. A representative reaction: Daniel J. Mitchell of the Cato Institute declared that by voting for Proposition 30, which authorized those tax increases, “the looters andmoochers of the Golden State” (yes, they really do think they’re living in an Ayn Rand novel) were committing “economic suicide.” Meanwhile, Avik Roy of the Manhattan Institute and Forbes claimed that California residents were about to face a “rate shock” that would more than double health insurance premiums. What has actually happened? There is, I’m sorry to say, no sign of the promised catastrophe. If tax increases are causing a major flight of jobs from California, you can’t see it in the job numbers. Employment is up 3.6 percent in the past 18 months, compared with a national average of 2.8 percent; at this point, California’s share of national employment, which was hit hard by the bursting of the state’s enormous housing bubble, is back to pre-recession levels. On health care, some people — basically healthy young men who were getting inexpensive insurance on the individual market and were too affluent to receive subsidies — did face premium increases, which we always knew would happen. Over all, however, the costs of health reform came in below expectations, while enrollment came in well above — more than triple initial predictions in the San Francisco area. A recent survey by the Commonwealth Fund suggests that California has already cut the percentage of its residents without health insurance in half. What’s more, all indications are that further progress is in the pipeline, with more insurance companies entering the marketplace for next year. And, yes, the budget is back in surplus. Has there been any soul-searching among the prophets of California doom, asking why they were so wrong? Not that I’m aware of. Instead, I’ve been seeing many attempts to devalue the good news from California by pointing out that the state’s job growth still lags that of Texas, which is true, and claiming that this difference is driven by differential tax rates, which isn’t. For the big difference between the two states, aside from the size of the oil and gas sector, isn’t tax rates. it’s housing prices. Despite thebursting of the bubble, home values in California are still double the national average, while in Texas they’re 30 percent below that average. So a lot more people are moving to Texas even though wages and productivity are lower than they are in California. And while some of this difference in housing prices reflects geography and population density — Houston is still spreading out, while Los Angeles, hemmed in by mountains, has reached its natural limits — it also reflects California’s highly restrictive land-use policies, mostly imposed by local governments rather than the state. As Harvard’s Edward Glaeser has pointed out, there is some truth to the claim that states like Texas are growing fast thanks to their anti-regulation attitude, “but the usual argument focuses on the wrong regulations.” And taxes aren’t important at all. So what do we learn from the California comeback? Mainly, that you should take anti-government propaganda with large helpings of salt. Tax increases aren’t economic suicide; sometimes they’re a useful way to pay for things we need. Government programs, like Obamacare, can work if the people running them want them to work, and if they aren’t sabotaged from the right. In other words, California’s success is a demonstration that the extremist ideology still dominating much of American politics is nonsense.

During a two day work visit to #California, the Secretary of Foreign Relations, José Antonio Meade Kuribreña, met with Governor Jerry Brown to review the bilateral agenda just ahead of the California governor's scheduled visit to #Mexico on July 27th through July 30th.

Both officials highlighted the broad ties that unite Mexico and California, and discussed possible cooperation mechanisms that might help increase the benefits of those ties in both of their respective societies.  They underscored opportunities for collaboration on education, the environment, trade and investment, tourism, energy and border infrastructure.

During his time in California, Secretary Meade also visited farm workers in San Joaquin County and reiterated the commitment of the Government of Mexico to Mexican communities abroad. He pointed out that the Mexican consular network, both in California and the entire U.S., engages in actions to promote respect for workers’ rights, regardless of their migratory status.
