On the Governing California blog, KQED’s Tyche Hendricks reports on Monday and Tuesday’s conference on California’s Future, sponsored by the Public Policy Institute of California. It was a star-studded affair, if you think economists, policy wonks, and politicians are stars. Participants included Michael Boskin, Laura D’Andrea Tyson, Van Jones, Jim Brulte, Robert Hertzberg, Kai Ryssdal, and KQED’s John Myers.
