California’s Future Economy



California's Future Economy California continues to outperform the nation as a whole in job growth because of its strength in three key industries: trade, technology and tourism. In an increasingly competitive globalized economy, California remains a prolific laboratory for ideas and a proving ground for innovative models of finance and climate stewardship. The state’s economy remains vulnerable, though, to domestic and international political and economic forces. This session explores the state's economic present and future in the context of what is happening now as well as what's to come.
