The Economy of California is $3.63trillion, largest in US and fifth in the world. The Government is California’s largest industry with 2.5 million employees. The second largest industry is Healthcare & Social Assistance, aka, welfare. In 2021, California exported $50 billion worth of agriculture representing 13% of all US exports. At the same time, California’s agriculture market in total was valued at – $50 billion. Total exports from all sources are roughly $180 billion with $32 billion going to Mexico, $32 billion to EU and $80 billion to Asia. It would appear California does not support the US – it exists to support Asia, Central America and the EU.
California expenditures for 2021 were $512 billion with the largest expense being ‘welfare’. State and Local revenue totaled $521 billion. The largest sources of revenue included Federal Government. Followed by University Tuition and Highway tolls. Followed by Income Taxes. ~According to Urban Institute.
Debt Clock has different numbers entirely: State Revenue is $618 billion and spending is $747 billion – with debt standing at $563 billion. On a total population of 38.8 million. The Census Bureau claims the population is 39.24 … but the last Census was in 2010 – so every number since is based on an algorithm. My pet peeve.
According to Urban Institute, California has a positive net budget of $9 billion, but according to Debt Clock it has a negative Net Budget of ($129 billion). QUITE a deviation of algorithm Math.
There are those who believe California would be better off sinking into the Pacific. I argued their agriculture positive value to the US as a whole – I was wrong.
As of 2021, total agriculture imports to US were valued at $163 billion. Quick Fact: California exports $50 billion in agriculture while the US imports $163 Billion in agriculture. HOUSTON!
Despite the fact that Gavin Newsom has degraded California cities to levels of horrific scum, he is being considered as the Democrat elect for 2024. WHY? Because he looks like Macron and Trudeau – and flies on that – instead of actual accomplishments. He’s a whore of sorts. And unfortunately, that deviant character would be shared by his Harvey Weinstein couched – wife.
I lived in northern California for roughly seven years during the 1980’s. I left because the people were rude, ugly, mean, and cliquey – in a junior high school sort of way. But the entire eastern front of California is completely different. The farms and ranches are beautiful! The people inviting! I’ve been up and down the coast numerous times.
IF California were governed by those representative peoples who make up some 90% of the total land – California would be my choice state!
REALITY: LA is now so deviant that the county refuses to release crime stats to the FBI. The population of this one country is roughly 10 million or 1/4th of the total of the entire state. Their entire economy is based on Hollywood and Fantasy, within 141 different Districts.
Illegal immigrant population in California is an ‘algorithm’ and states that it is 2.2 million. They are included in all Census. Meaning the population is a configuration of illegal estimates. Given we have had 2.5 million illegals enter the US via California in the last two years, it is a good guess – that the numbers provided to The Public are significantly skewered. Granted not all illegals who convene on the California border remain in California, many are bussed across the US to infiltrate such cities as NYC, Minneapolis, Detroit, Houston, and Miami. All without a peep from the Progressive Democrat Compassionates. Bussing is only an issue when it targets elite strongholds like Long Island….
Of course the main derivative of California illegal immigrants is to service the Wine Country – like Pelosi’s vineyard in Northern California. IN fact, the main precursor to illegal immigration is to service serfdom. So as to create greater capitalist profits by the Communists in charge d’affaire. A classic definition.
Gavin Newsom has destroyed California. Pelosi has capitalized on that destruction. They are related by blood. And they rule by blood. IF California was actually to contribute to the US – instead of selling off to foreign countries – imagine the internal wealth generated – imagine the supply chain of inexpensive agriculture products, semiconductors, and machine parts that could actually RAISE AMERICA to a global self-sufficient economy…
California has much to offer – alas, it exports that talent, that production, that value to the detriment of the American People!
