The world's eighth largest economy sure sounds like it's great for business.
From Florida to Texas, governors and presidential wannabes are clamoring for a piece of California's action. Given how hot California's economy has been in the past year, you can't blame them, but it would help their cases if the numbers backed them up. Earlier this month, Florida Gov.

Lenny Mendonca leads the way in helping others see what's great about California and works tirelessly to push policy that will improve the Golden State. It's an effort that CalPossible supports 100 percent.

Hmmm. The U.S. economy is completing its strongest year since 2007 and California is experiencing even greater growth. It looks like California is great for business after all.

If you're in Sacramento, you probably already know this. If you're not in the capital, then here's yet another reason to visit.
THE SACRAMENTO BEE: Sacramento moved up the ranks of serious coffee towns Wednesday when industry arbiter Coffee Review released its list of the 30 best coffees of 2014. Sacramento had more coffees on the list than any other city in the U.S. Temple Coffee and Old Soul each had two coffees among ...

Not Texas, not Nevada, not New York, not Massachusetts.... California. This is what I'm talking about!
SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNE: The U.S. economy will expand at its fastest pace since the end of the Great Recession, and California is going to play a major role with that success in the coming year, says a key economic forecast released this week. Chapman University's Anderson Center for Economic ...

It may be no surprise when the largest state is the largest in any particular industry, but California has experienced considerable growth in this sector and expects much more in 2015.
ADVANCED ENERGY ECONOMY: Advanced energy jobs grew 5 percent in the past year, giving California the largest advanced energy industry in the country, according to the first-ever industry-wide survey released Thursday by the Advanced Energy Economy Institute. At 431800 jobs, advanced energy ...

Reports of the death of California business appear to be not only premature but entirely wrong. And it’s certainly not happening at the hands of Texas, as has been commonly stated by business interests that hold up the Lone Star State as a shiny beacon of low taxes and few industry regulations.

This is what we've been talking about! The discussion of how Texas is better than California is very outdated ... and was never really true in the first place. Much of the economy in Texas remains oil-based, which is threatened by the current drop in crude prices. California has always had a much more diverse economy, one that has been steadily gaining strength as the state recovers from the national housing bust.
THE NEW YORKER: These days, no one is talking about the lessons California should learn from Texas. California's economy is improving, and its budget is finally balanced. These changes happen to come as Texas, the nation's biggest oil-producing state by far, is grappling with a collapse in oil ...

Yes, it does pay to have a great idea ... and the know-how to actually follow through.
SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNE: Three guys named Daniel recently went on Kickstarter hoping to raise $100000 on the crowdfunding site to manufacture Hush, “smart” earplugs that block all noise except the things you want to hear. They felt good about their idea, which they developed as engineering ...

It's almost a truism that sports arenas don't add to the local economy. This is proving to be very untrue in Sacramento as companies are not only building near the arena site, but establishing headquarters there.
THE SACRAMENTO BEE: The current construction of a sports and entertainment arena and adjacent hotel in downtown Sacramento is prompting many developers to start their own projects nearby. The latest appears to be a 26-story headquarters and office tower across the street from the future home of ...

Is this piling on? Here's another industry that California leads.
CALIFORNIA HEALTHCARE INSTITUTE: A report released Thursday shows that if nothing else, California is an innovation machine. “Favorable policies have helped make California the world's leader in biomedical research and development,” said Todd E. Gillenwater, president and CEO of the California ...
