The Golden State’s luster dimmed during the Great Recession, but much of that shine has returned. Housing was slammed, but the sector has snapped back smartly. State finances were in dire condition, but we’ve found a way to make the ends meet. Jobs were lost en masse, but now they…. well, we’re working on it. Nevertheless, even after this trying time, California retains its undisputed leadership in high technology, entertainment, agriculture, biotech and other fields that contribute so much to our world. Yet the state’s flawed and burdened education system is failing to prepare many young people for the future. Costs are high for those inspired to build a business here. And with 38 million residents, we are straining our resources, including the most vital: water. At this luncheon session, some of the state’s most accomplished leaders will address these challenges and offer their ideas on laying the groundwork for long-term prosperity.
