'Mixed message: Business relocation expert is both fan, critic of California'

Story in the Orange County Register today about yours truly:
For a guy who’s gained a reputation as a harsh critic of California’s business climate, Joe Vranich has surprisingly good things to say about the state. 
Vranich, owner of Spectrum Location Solutions in Irvine, is a corporate relocation specialist who has gained a loyal following among people who think California’s regulatory and tax structure is scaring away hordes of businesses. ...  
His latest report estimates 9,000 business have disinvested from California in the past seven years – departures and out-of-state expansions that could have been worth at least $68 billion in capital investment.
See the rest of the story here.

One focus of this blog has been to address California’s hostility toward business, as addressed in the new study, Businesses Continue to Leave California - A Seven-Year Review, issued in November 2015.
