    I hope this list helps you understand that for all of the imperfections of California’s business climate, its economy remains a huge collection sum of stuff getting managed, designed, built, shipped and sold. Size says something. And many outsiders would love to have the state’s economic headaches. Jonathan Lansner is the business columnist for the Southern California News Group.
