A high-level panel looks at California’s economy as we head toward year’s end and compares the state’s challenges with those of the nation.  Will the pickup in home prices and construction spur on the rest of the economy? Will the tech sector boom sustain and jumpstart job growth in other industries? Which geographical centers serve as the best models for success? How can government prevent budget shortfalls from getting in the way of private sector progress? A wide range of economic experts will weigh in on the outlook for recovery and prosperity as the year comes to a close.
