San Francisco’s economy is a shell of its former self. California throws money at its homeless problem with mixed results, and Gavin Newsom resides on Donald Trump’s social-media website. Hoover senior fellow Lee Ohanian and distinguished policy fellow Bill Whalen, both contributors to Hoover’s “California on Your Mind” web channel, join Hoover senior writer Jonathan Movroydis to discuss where the fabled “Babylon by the Bay” went wrong, the right remedies for homelessness, plus the political upside of a blue-state governor trashing America’s red states.
