This lecture will describe three lenses through which to view and evaluate Stockton’s bankruptcy. First, Stockton will be placed in the context of the political economy of two “world cities:” San Jose and San Francisco. Secondly, Stockton’s relationship with the State of California will be analyzed. Finally, Stockton’s political environment and its evolution since the mid-20th century will be explored.
