The article comments on a panel discussion related to economic dynamism of California. The mixed report from panelists at Milken Institute State of the State Conference balanced the state's economic dynamism and optimistic culture with a political system that has not proven itself up to the task of steering the state's financial course. The panelists that gathered to look at the effect of California's political climate on the economy and the effect of the state's continuing budget crises on state and local governments had few kind words for state lawmakers.
