California – long known for its movie production, rich agriculture and dazzling coastline – also wears the mantle of the world’s sixth biggest economy. Yet despite its economic clout, the state falls short when it comes to promoting global trade and forging agreements with foreign governments that could benefit its citizens. Consultant and investment banker Rodrigo Tavares takes a critical look at the problem and suggests general solutions that government officials in California and other regions could implement. getAbstract recommends this eye-opening article to state and local authorities interested in extending their international reach and influencing global policy.
In this summary, you will learn
- How the rise of cities, states and other “subnational entities” affects international agreements;
- Why California should tap into its enormous potential to become a global economic power; and
- What steps government officials in California and other subnational entities could take to leave a bigger policy imprint on the world stage.
