Investing in California's Future

California continues to outperform the national average in job growth, led by signature industries in trade, technology, entertainment, and tourism. While California continues to profit on this post-recession economic success, the state’s long-term economic foundation is threatened by the high cost of living, the lengthy regulatory process for new businesses, and increased competition from domestic and international markets in technology. To keep the golden state’s economic future bright, leaders in business and government must leverage opportunities around increasing investment in communities and higher education supporting the jobs of the future to spur continued innovation and growth. How can state leaders’ best leverage California’s economic and cultural advantages to keep the state’s economy vibrant and growing in the 21st century?
