How to Fix California

Very interesting and good interview with Art Laffer on how to fix California by Reason.tv.

“right to work states far out perform non-right to work states”

California State teachers are the highest paid in the nation, but second lowest in testing for 4th and 8th grade math and english.  But it’s not the teachers fault specifically – it’s the system that causes the problem.

“It’s not liberal, it’ not conservative… it’s economics.”

Laffer had praise for the economic policy of politicians on both sides as well as criticism for some on both sides.

He’s published a book called “Eureka! How to Fix California” which I’ll have to read… Sounds like it will have some great insight.
