The world's 8th biggest economy is in trouble:
- The state budget gap could reach $41.8 billion by 2010
- Standard & Poors has downgraded California's bonds again
- Wall Street giants are urging investors to bet that California will go bankrupt
What would it mean if the world's 8th largest economy failed? It wouldn't be pretty.
Forget the automakers. Help California. Aid to states is the fourth best bang for the buck in terms of stimulus. And it could help prevent the 50 pieces of America from failing one at a time.
