California Proposition 23

Monday, Oct. 4, 2010

On the November ballot, Californians will be asked to decide whether to suspend the provisions of the Global Warming Act of 2006. Proponents of the proposition claim that the 2006 act will cost the state jobs and that the act's requirements should be suspended until unemployment drops to 5.5% or below for four consecutive quarters.

SCU Professor of Economics Bill Sundstrom visited the Center's Emerging Issues Group today to discuss the likely economic impacts of the original legislation and the effort to rescind it. (podcast)

Sundstrom teaches courses in microeconomics, economic history, labor economics, history of economic thought, and environmental economics. His research interests include the history of labor markets.
