Stay tuned for future California Live! Lectures.
California is the 9th largest economy in the world, supplies the nation with much of its food, resources and innovation, and has the finest public university system ever conceived. It is also buried under a mountain of debt and gets little respect from the federal government. Democrats treat the state like an ATM at election time, and then largely write it off for four years. Republicans scorn it as an incorrigible bastion of liberalism.
This time around, what can the state of California expect from re-elected President Barack Obama? How will it be different depending on who sits in the Oval Office?
Join dean of Berkeley Law and Obama advisor Christopher Edley and dean of the Goldman School of Public Policy Henry Brady as they examine how the state of California will be impacted by President Obama in office. Due to illness, David Lazarus will not be moderating this panel discussion. He will be replaced by Los Angeles Times political columnist and Cal alumnus James Rainey '81.
Sponsored by Berkeley Law, Goldman School of Public Policy, and the Cal Alumni Association.
Join Robert Reich, Willie Brown, dean of the Goldman School of Public Policy Henry Brady, Hoover Institute economist Michael Boskin, and SF Chronicle columnist Deb Saunders for a panel discussion on taxation and what kind of services, including public higher education, Californians want from their government. Co-sponsored by Goldman School of Public Policy and KQED.
