New Website offers in-depth analysis on future of California economy

FRESNO, CALIF. --- An unprecedented collection of research about California's “subnational” status on the global stage is now available online.

The research, stemming from an investigation of global economic indicators, reveals that the Golden State is the only place in the world that has the conditions to lead the world into an interconnected age where all nations are participating in one global market.

Marcus Ruiz Evans, author of “California's Next Century 2.0,” published by Mikazuki Publishing, says that the Website's launch will bring the debate regarding the role of the United States in the 21st Century to a new level. The site, which can be found at CaliforniasNextCentury.com, is a clearinghouse for the research that would feed this debate.

“The more people begin to realize – what my book explains in my detail – that the global economy is shifting and only California has what it takes to lead America to prosperity as the power shifts to a global economy, the wheels start spinning,” Evans said. “And when they realize what opportunity California has to play a leading role, they get energized.”

Ruiz has campaigned across the state and participated in televised panel discussions on the topic. With the launch of the site, the campaigning will now shift to building an online community that will eventually lead to a series of mandates, directing the state legislature to take its rightful place as leader of the new century.

“This is a complex topic that does take time to understand,” Ruiz said, “but it has real-world impact on everyday citizens within California, and beyond.” 

According to Ruiz, the equivalent of the entire state's budget is being sent to other states, while California's infrastructure suffers. The state is rated as the worst maintained in virtually every category of infrastructure when compared to other states. The Web site features informative graphics that give new visitors a clear and concise explanation. To view the graphics and learn about this topic, visit the site at CaliforniasNextCentury.com.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Published by Mikazuki Publishing House and written by Author Marcus Ruiz Evans, "California's Next Century 2.0: Economic Renaissance" argues for more political and economic self-autonomy for California, continuing a trend of the Federal government giving up authority on certain policies to California and the California state increasingly taking on traditional Federal roles. With more policy freedom California would be able to link its economy better to the emerging global economy of the future and become one of the richest places in the world. The author also delivers a vision of California becoming a "new Switzerland" that would provide a central location capable of bringing all cultures together politically and economically in one area in order to ensure world peace in the future. Initial responses have been supportive with positive reviews from individuals such as James O. Goldsborough, an author for the Council on Foreign Relations. "California's Next Century 2.0: Economic Renaissance" (ISBN-978-1-937981-81-5) is available in stores now.
