(p.181) Chapter 6 The Future of the Golden State
California in the New Millennium

Mark Baldassare

University of California Press

Californians know they are living in the midst of historic growth and change, and they are clearly worried about it. More than 80 percent of residents said in the surveys that they expect their regions to grow either fast or modestly in population over the next ten years. This chapter looks beyond 2000 and offers some general ideas about how forces such as political distrust, racial and ethnic change, and regional diversity are likely to play out in the state's political and policy process. Some recommendations are offered that will help the state find better ways to cope with the many challenges looming before it.

Keywords:   Californians, ethnic change, regional diversity, political distrust, population
