The California economy isn’t just a U.S. powerhouse

“California has one-eighth of the U.S. population of 327.7 million. It’s a third the size of Japan, half of Germany and not quite two-thirds of the U.K. But its economic strength looms larger than any of them,” as Bloomberg is reporting. (“Hat tip” to Steve Frisch).

One thought on “The California economy isn’t just a U.S. powerhouse”

  1. I love California! I’ve lived and/or worked in other places, including Denver, Chicago, Washington D.C., and Fort Lauderdale, and I’ve traveled all over the world — Europe, Asia, North America, South America, and Oceania (Australia and New Zealand) — and I like it most of all. I like its companies (home to three of the four “FANG” stocks; Facebook Netflix and Google), other great companies/stocks (Disney, Apple, Salesforce), Silicon Valley, world-class arts and culture, lots of major league sports teams, outstanding universities (Cal, Stanford, Cal Tech, etc.), diversity, natural beauty (from the coast to the foothills to Lake Tahoe), and so on. I am proud to be a “native Californian” and get a hoot out of those who whine about it (mostly out of jealously or a “podunk” or racial/religious intolerant mindset). Proud of my Golden State.
