Conference Description: California, the richest state of the union, is now financially bankrupt with the lowest credit rating in the USA. It is the highest taxed and highest spending state and has been running deficits for years. The state teetered on the brink of collapse in February before a compromise was achieved on the budget. It is not over yet—without voter approval, the crisis will come to head again. The conference will discuss the California State’s fiscal crisis and its structural causes and the likely future course it will take.
