 The Institute of Governmental Studies and the Berkeley Roundtable on the International Economy invite you to join us for the next event in our California in the Global Economy program.

Please join us on Thursday, February 9th at 4:00 PM in 109 Moses Hall for Greater Los Angeles, San Diego and San Francisco: Understanding their Trajectories and Reflecting on their Futures, with distinguished speakers Michael Storper, UCLA and Mary Walshok, UCSD.

California is now the sixth largest economy in the world.  Speakers Michael Storper and Mary Walshok, are co-authors of two books, The Rise and Fall of Urban Economies: Lessons from San Francisco and Los Angeles and Invention & Reinvention: The Evolution of San Diego's Innovation Economy, respectively. They will explore the reasons these three great city-regions experienced such different evolutionary dynamics and outcomes.  California’s future rests upon the political-economic trajectories of these three great city-regions. Moreover, the lessons drawn from these cases can inform economic development studies and policy development for urban regions around the world.
