  1. Given the apparent strength of the defenders of Prop 13 and the concentrated ownership of land in California, there does not seem to be a realistic political solution to the problem. When the burden of taxation and property rents imposed on businesses becomes too great, they will do as businesses always do — they will reduce the number of employees; and, if this does not protect sought after profit margins, they will pick up and move. When enough employers move out of California property markets will crash.
