Um artigo de Thomas Sowell no Capitalism Magazine:
California's Real Elections
The latest census data show -- for the first time -- that more Californians have been moving to other states than people in other states have been moving to California. Between 1995 and 2000, California had a net loss of more than 600,000 people to other states. People are voting with their feet.
California's total population has not gone down, however. Immigrants have replaced Americans. Apparently California is still considered to be preferable to Mexico or Central America.
After years -- indeed, generations -- of being a magnet for people and businesses, California is now exporting both, including particularly young people. Why?
One reason is that California's politicians are following a strategy which has worked well politically in New York City -- milking the productive people in order to support the unproductive, whose votes count just as much and are easier to get.
