California has one-eighth of the U.S. population of 327.7 million. It's a third of the size of Japan, half of Germany and not quite two-thirds of the U.K. But it looms larger in strength than any developed economy.

Governor Gina Raimondo, the Harvard-educated economist and Rhodes Scholar, is writing a turnaround case study of how the smallest state with little going for it is the benchmark -- rising from the bottom half of the nation to above average.

Fossil fuel never had a better friend in the White House than Donald Trump. So why, two years into his presidency, are investors favoring public companies devoted to renewable energy and giving the Bronx cheer to the coal, gas and oil crowd?

The hypocrisy of Trumponomics is laid bare by the demonizing of undocumented workers as the Trump Organization profits from them. States with the greatest concentration of immigrants create the most jobs and biggest increase in personal income.

For savvy British investors uncertainty about Brexit and the terms of the divorce meant purging the U.K. from their holdings or limiting them to investments impervious to man-made and natural disasters.

California, New York and Washington were among the first of 29 states to start phasing in a $15 hourly rate, and their economies expanded with bigger boosts in personal income, job growth and consumer spending than the 21 states resisting anything above $7.25.

Investors in Argentina would seem to have no peers among global losers. MercadoLibre and Globant show investors and citizens the country doesn’t have to be perpetually chaotic.

Companies aren't putting Trump's America first: Foreign direct investment has fallen the most in almost two decades amid dwindling confidence by business leaders about continued U.S. prosperity.
