Allysia Finley: The Reverse-Joads of California – WSJ.com

Over the past two decades, a net 3.4 million people have moved out of California for other states. But contrary to conservative lore, there has been no millionaires’ march to Texas or other states with no income tax. In fact, since 2005 California has experienced a net in-migration of households earning more than $200,000, according to the U.S. Census’s American Community Survey.

Yes, and it is most noticeable in upper class playgrounds like San Francisco.

California is rapidly becoming a Blue State wet dream, in which a small and extremely wealthy upper class is tended by to by a huge, base-wage servant class. Think of it as Aspen, but 500 by 300 miles in area.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. So now the definition of millionaire is “households earning more than $200,000?” After %60 taxes and housing in the neighbourhoods where 6 figure incomes live?

    Uh huh. Gotcha.
