California has been growing since the end of the recession in June 2009. But the unemployment rate has been stuck at 12.4%. Why has job growth been so anemic? In this seminar we will explore the causes of slow job growth; from the potential for a double dip to the putative wisdom that Texas (with its 8.3% unemployment rate) has been poaching jobs from the Golden State.

Jerry Nickelsburg joined the UCLA Anderson Forecast in 2006 as a senior economist.  At the Anderson Forecast he plays a key role in the economic modeling and forecasting of the Los Angeles, Southern California and California economies.  His current academic research is on organizational and individual learning in manufacturing, and the influence of power groups on the balance of trade.

He is a regular presenter at the Los Angeles Mayor’s Economic Conference and has been cited in the national and local media including the Financial Times, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Reuters, Variety, CNBC, NBC, PBS, and L.A. Business Journal.
