  • Improving a good thing: making regulatory reform better February 9, 2017
    One of the few significant pro-business reforms to emerge from the Legislature during the recession was a more robust cost-effectiveness requirement for administrative regulations. Authored by Senator Ron Calderon but written and shepherded by then-Senate staff and now Assemblyman Ken Cooley, the measure required agencies to analyze regulatory alternatives more diligently, provide more extensive economic analysis of […]
  • If the question is upward mobility the answer is California colleges February 1, 2017
    What’s the most effective tool to improve economic mobility in California? Higher minimum wage? No. Mandatory employment benefits? Nope. Higher redistributive taxes? Nada.

Uncertainty about the economy, about federal tax policy, and most importantly about taxpayer behavior, supports a prudent approach from […]
  • California Factors Dampen Upward Mobility For The Poor January 6, 2017
    Children born to low-income parents in California have slightly higher lifetime earnings than children born to low-income parents in other states – but not because they live in California. Researchers credit the better income mobility to the parents. In fact, these same children would have experienced even greater upward income mobility had they grown up […]
