California, the land of anti-Trump “resistance”, has its own problems both irresistible and intractable – mounting public pension debt, underfunded schools, and a revenue stream too dependent upon capital gains. David Crane, a Stanford lecturer, past economic aide to Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and co-founder of Govern for California, weighs the health of the state so bitterly opposed to Trump.

    I’d like to hear a discussion with David Crane and David Victor Hanson.

    Thank you Mr. Whalen. I never miss an Area 45 podcast. David Crane was a fascinating guest. I realize that you are based in California, but I wonder if you know of anyone who is engaged in rescuing that other west coast state up in the corner that is striving to become Cali Jr. We haven’t yet fallen as far, but we’re definitely headed in the same direction. I’m sure there is much we could learn from California’s history but I don’t think anyone up here is on it. I’d be interested in knowing what you think.
