Making the leap into California's future–and the unkown

Karthick Ramakrishnan is a professor of public policy at the University of California, Riverside. He is also the executive director for California 100.

“Our toolkit comes at the end of 13 reports that we have produced in collaboration with research centers throughout California,” he told Capitol Weekly. “Henry E. Brady, who is the former dean of the Goldman School of Public Policy at UC Berkeley, is our director of research. His team helped to coordinate those reports.

“Each of the reports takes a different topic to think about past trends and then project them into the future in terms of what California might face. For example, we have reports on housing and transportation, energy and the environment in California. The reports take a step back to think about scenarios that cut across these issues.”
