The Pat Brown Institute of Public Affairs (PBI) has announced that Joe Mathews, co-author of California Crackup: How Reform Broke the Golden State and How We Can Fix It, will deliver PBI’s 2010 Distinguished Lecture.

From the announcement:

Governor Edmund G. “Pat” Brown was instrumental in laying the foundation for the Golden State’s infrastructure in the 1950s and 1960s.  Almost 50 years later, we find ourselves in a state of economic and political crisis and unrest. What steps must be taken to stabilize the state’s current and future outlook? How do we revive a reeling California while being equally visionary to the 32nd Governor? Concluding the 2010 California Agenda public policy forum series, this distinguished lecture will examine the origins of California’s unprecedented crisis, its current weakened condition, and the means to fixing the “cracks.”
