California was recently ranked as the 6th largest economy in the world. A healthy economy, as well as a great exchange rate, has led to this fantastic growth. Last year, California created so many employment opportunities. Four of the largest companies in the world are located in this state, including Facebook and Alphabet. The economic growth of California is not only big, but also growing at a faster rate than that of any other nation. Without a doubt, the state has an enormously productive economy that is superb for growth.
The Bureau of the Economy shows that the economic output of the west coast of California was at $2.46 trillion in the year 2015. That number has been able to push the state’s economic output above other cities. California saw a growth of 2.4 percent, which was more than that of the United States as a whole. The rise in global rankings has come at the expense of some countries like France and Brazil. France has been burdened by a currency that is weak, while Brazil has been struggling economically.

The women factor in California’s economy
A stronger California is a California that has a synchronized and all-inclusive set of policies. Policies that are geared towards the offering of a strengthened economic opportunity as well as a triumph for California’s women, their families, and the communities that they come from. This is because women are for all intents and purposes the primary caregivers of a family. The children and their husbands are dependent on these women in one-way or another. The American Bureau of Statics gives the impression that just about 50% of the American workforce is made up of women who are primary income earners in their households. Despite women having performed better in education than men, they are likely to face numerous challenges in their struggle to being economically successful. However, California offers economic security to all Californian women regardless of their race, color, or religion.
Therefore, it is evident that the potential for women’s economic progression in California cannot be exaggerated. California’s administration and economic growth has managed to a large extent to secure an economic opportunity for all women, thus strengthening families, the public, and the welfare of the state. Therefore, it is important for any woman with a young family to take note of California’s size and national significance since it is the right combination that is likely to fuel both women’s social and economic success and strengthen their families, all thanks to the strong economy.
