  1. Impressive!
    But, are we now going to hear about how bad proposition 13 -from 45 years ago- was and how they’re struggling to survive on the revenue?

  2. Negative real interest rates, AKA free money, fueled a real estate boom which will be followed by a multi-year bust with positive real interest rates on top of higher inflation. Courtesy of the geniuses in both parties who printed trillions of dollars to counteract the effects of a multi-year pandemic shutdown which should have been lifted after the first wave. Nobody did any cost-benefit analysis. Worse, they will do the same thing next time.
