Your link doesn't work.

The Government's 2016 data isn't out yet.

The Government's 2015 data says that California has the 17th biggest state economy per capita.

There is a whole lot of chirping about California's economy for being 17th.


If it weren't for Billionaires and Millionaires in a couple select industries (Hollywood and Silicon Valley) Nebraska would easily surpass them.

California has the 17th biggest state economy in the US per capita, edging out Nebraska at 18. (Texas is 14th and Kansas is 25th).
Take a closer look at that ranking. Your link says 10, not 17. The 17 number is not the number for 2015.

Lol is right. Reich says that Texas's growth is dropping but says nothing about the fact that it's still pretty strong. And I don't know what kind of economist doesn't factor in home ownership to measure community strength and quality of life.

No, this is a screen shot from the US Commerce Department website showing the very latest ranking of states by per capita gdp.


Here is the link to the official 2015 State GDP report:
BEA: News Release: Gross Domestic Product by State, 4th Quarter 2015

That's because California is not 17th, it's the largest state GDP by about $1 Trillion and is the 6th largest in the world.

You mean California benefits from it's largest industries? How novel

Some parts of TX are more like California than Detroit MI in terms of economy and demographics. Toyota USA is currently relocating their headquarter from Torrance CA to West Plano TX (just north of Dallas) moving about 3000 employees bringing their families. They are curious what's Plano like -- it actually has about 20% Asian, 15% Latinos, 65% whites ... not that much different from Torrance CA. There are other blue states giant corporations relocating thousands at a time to Plano area.

Low taxes and loose regulations could do something to TX going forward. Democrats did not pay much attention to TX during the campaign, this state actually can change and it's big.
Bingo. For the most part Texas is just like inland CA. I hardly see a difference when visiting inland Cali. Only coastal CA makes CA vastly unique from the rest of the country. I'm in Temecula, CA in the inland right now enjoying thanksgving dinner at a winery and it looks a lot like hill country Texas. CAs act as though Texas is still a cowpoke state. LOL

California would have to bleed so much blue to turn Texas purple, it would become purple.
Weird how companies never seem to move from red states to blue states.

Dont they? Companies often move from red states to third world countries too. Is it because third world countries are so amazing? Or do you think it could be a race to the bottom in terms of pay and benefits in order to whip the workers into submission?
