Op-Ed Columnist – Tom Joad Gave Up – NYTimes.com

The answer is to return to the tradition of pro-market progressivism that built modern California in the first place. Except this time, it can’t be about building up the ’50s-style suburbs. It needs to focus on supporting the immigrant entrepreneurs, averting state bankruptcy and unleashing the industrial and agricultural base.

The antigovernment conservatives and the unions have built institutions and bases of support. The heirs to the pro-market progressive tradition have not. What’s needed is not a revolution, but a restoration and a modernization of what California once had.
