Why evaluate the California population delay for legislators?

Since mid-May, it’s been the same here on the Westside of Los Angeles.

Beep! Beep! Beep! Beep!

Several times a week, I hear the sound of a moving truck returning to my apartment, with occasional shouts and screams. Now, I have lost many of my neighbors, as well as others in my apartment, who have moved into their larger condos-less condos and apartments.

Someone told me that he and his wife were hiding and went to their home at a place not far from Sierra. Some said he was moving to the deserts of the Arizona wilderness. Someone left the state – back to the Midwest, I think – to be close to family.

So it is not surprising to read the latest report from the California Treasury Department, which found that population growth has slowed as people move here. most moved and a few more were born.

The property was acquired in California by about 21,200 residents between July 2019 and July 2020. Whoever remembers the final result was that he saw the move. But the growth rate, according to the report, is at 0.05% – a percentage for paltry that has not been recorded since 1900.

Los Angeles, the largest state in the state, has cut costs to as many as 40,000 small residents.

So find out what’s hot about California’s death. I can think of the titles that have been included, especially after a collection of financial engineers – such as SpaceX’s Elon Musk, Oracle’s Larry Ellison and Dropbox’s Drew Houston – moved themselves and, to some cases, their company in Texas.

“If a team wins long, they want a little comfort, a little responsibility, and then they won’t win the tournament again,” Musk told the Wall Street Journal. “California has won for a long time. And I think they will take them a little further.”

I hate to give more reasons to think well of themselves, but Musk has a point. The population figures reported by the Department of Finance are nothing new, but they are moving fast.

And while there is no public “exodus” – about 40 million people live in California – it would be wise for lawmakers to return to Sacramento this month to talk about their comfort regarding high house prices state and other financial problems. This is the time to stop nipping around the edges and finally do something important.

But now the language is very confusing.

Asked to explain the slow population growth, state officials blamed low birth rates and wildfires. But above all, they point to the epidemic of COVID-19 as it devastated thousands of California and may have taken care of keeping thousands of other Californians from moving.

I’m not quite sure of that. Dowell Myers is not a professor and leader of the Populated Dynamics Research Group at USC.

“I hope they don’t see it as a sign of COVID,” he said. “Because then they’ll think,‘ Oh, a drug! We’ve covered it now. That is the problem. COVID is the new device required, but COVID is not the one performing this test. ”

When it comes to hiring, Myers adds.

However, state officials point out that hundreds of percent of the majority of the right people continue to move here to show the high demand for living in California. Of course, since the Great Recession, those who move here are holding higher incomes while those who are leaving are earning lower incomes.

Today, home prices are hovering around the historical levels in California, with buyers able to find a larger area involved in fighting wars in the most stable markets. Low interest rates for the downside have fallen, as unemployment has doubled and rising coronavirus cases have replaced parts of the economy.

The only thing that really works is COVID-19 – other than overturning hospitals and hurting the public – increasing the margin of disproportionate income.

Is that the kind of state we want? In California where the only residents are the rich and the poor, even if they want to, they can’t leave? Or a state where a large part of the property owner owns many houses and the others are nothing?

Another question, perhaps, for the state legislators is how long this will take.

With the army protected from COVID-19 months in the long run and hope that working at home will last longer than that for many, the temptation to leave California will continue – although living here fighting over two. bungalow apartment costing nearly $ 1 million

This is especially true for people with high incomes calling on the Bay Area and Southern California home, said David Garcia, director at UC Berkeley’s Terner Center for Housing Innovation.

“While they may make a lot of money in California, I think they know most of their income goes to homes elsewhere or not,” he said. “Just because they can stay here, it doesn’t matter.”

So much is being done to what the Legislature can accomplish.

Last session, COVID-19, a chests for housing bills, cut short on Senate 50, where it will be available. increased housing, and Senate 1120 Bill, which would eliminate single-family zoning by allowing duplexes in large numbers. This season should be different.

“Part of the design is moving forward,” Garcia said, “about how to keep the house pipe moving forward?”
