About the Book:
When the agency responsible for state roads spends $4 million on new cars and trucks, then parks the same cars and trucks unused for two years, that’s Crazifornia. When cancer warnings are required on buildings because they may contain estrogen or testosterone, that’s Crazifornia. And when a full-frontal governmental assault on business drives enough people out of a state in ten years to double the population of Oregon, that’s Crazifornia too. Bureaucratic ineptitude, anti-business policies, a failed education system, entrenched environmentalism, unsustainable pensions and a perpetually unbalanced budget have all combined to transform the once vigorous Golden State into a case study in how the world’s seventh largest economy is teetering on the edge of disaster.
Through tale after outrageous tragic tale, this book explains why California is crashing, making it a must-read for all Californians and for anyone who fears the state’s suicidal policies may be coming their way soon.
About the Author:
Laer Pearce was lucky enough to be born in California, at a naval hospital in Oakland. It was torn down to make room for a real estate development that went bankrupt. He was almost born on the Oakland Bay Bridge, which was damaged in an earthquake. It took California some 20 years to repair it – with plenty of incompetence and scandal in the mix.
Maybe that’s what drove him to write “Crazifornia: Tales from the Tarnished State.” More likely, though, it’s the 30 years he’s spent hacking away at California’s regulatory jungle for the businesses and municipal governments his public affairs firm represents.
One of his three daughters has already fled California for saner climes. He and his wife sometimes think about leaving, only to realize he’s unemployable in any state that functions well enough to be worth moving to. And anyway, the weather’s fabulous.
