While California Ponders Condoms for Porn Stars – Businesses Take a Powder

Calif. Business Departures Increasing —

Now Five Times Higher Than In 2009

Today, California is experiencing the fastest rate of disinvestment events based on public domain information, closure notices to the state, and information from affected employees in the three years since a specialized tracking system was put into place.
Out-of-state economic development officials are traveling through the state to alert frustrated business owners and corporate executives to their friendlier business climate versus California’s hostility toward commercial enterprises.
From Jan. 1 of this year through this morning, June 16, we have had 129 disinvestment events occur, an average of 5.4 per week.

  • For all of last year, we saw an average of 3.9 events per week.
  • Comparing this year thus far with 2009, when the total was 51 events, essentially averaging 1 per week, our rate today is more than 5 times what it was then.
The same tracking system has been in place throughout the three-year period.

Our losses are occurring at an accelerated rate. Also, no one knows the real level of activity because smaller companies are not required to file layoff notices with the state. A conservative estimate is that only 1 out of 10 company departures becomes public knowledge, which means California may suffer more than 2,000 disinvestment events this year. The capital directed to out-of-state or out-of-country, while difficult to calculate, is nonetheless in the billions of dollars.   Business Relocation Coach

  1. California is so screwed it ain’t even funny.
    And all Gov. Moonbeam can think to do is raise taxes still higher and thus drive even more businesses out of the state.

  2. Real estate is still very expensive, that might be another reason people can’t afford to stay in CA.
    Money’s too tight to mention, and there’s nothin’ goin’ on ‘cept the rent.
