California Think Fair Act Bill Proposal Cost out data  (click here for federal proposal)

Will this bankrupt the Californian economy: No

Will this public policy help stabilize or jump start the California economy: Yes

What is California's yearly GDP estimate: California had a GDP of 3.09 trillion dollars in 2020

What is California's estimated GDP over the next 50 years: More than 154.5 trillion. 

What is the total cash owed by state of California to ADOS families due to racial prejudice policies: 6.163 Trillion dollars

Does California have the GDP necessary to pay this debt: Yes

What additional resources do California have not included in the above calculations: state land, state mineral right options

Does California have enough wealth to pay 100% of the harmed/injury debts over time: Yes

How does this grow the economy: Example 1: Its forecasted one impact of paying the debt will be an increase in California home purchasing. This would lead to more consumption as reparations recipients live their best lives. This would in theory circulate money, and impact sales quantities at other businesses, and therefore stabilize or grow the economy.

What commercial lobbying firm is backing this proposal:

Does the policy design have high risk of bankrupting the California: No

What is the cash disbursement design: Jumpstart and staggered direct cash compensations How are they designed: to mitigate budget concerns. 

Who pays for this: State of California

What portions of income tax will be used to pay for this: revenues previously collected from tax bracket: 12.3% +, $599,013 or more
Impact on average for all California taxpayers:  When there is more wealth spread out into more taxpayer households, the individual tax burden tends to go down. If all tax laws stayed the same this policy would reduce the aggregated tax burden of California taxpayers. Note: Tax law changes are an "x" factor which could impact tax burden forecast. 

Jump start payout: $2.1 million

Total harm and injury amount owed, owed per person: $2.4 million

Who calculated the debt owed:

How was it calculated: The $800,000.00 per person from Dr. Darity + the $1,600,00.00 per The $800,000.00 per person total is harm/injury as a result of California policies causing the wealth gap. The $1,600,000.00 per person total is harm/injury as a result of California policies causing trauma measured by the Davenport Intergenerational Trauma Syndrome Scale (DITSS.)

How will current living harmed/injured US taxpayer dependents be paid: direct cash payments

Term of programs: > All debts should be paid over 60 years, based on the longest payout program available

What is payout Chapter A: Jumpstart, followed by 30 years of 10K a year payments.

What is payout Chapter B : No jumpstart, 60 years of 10K payments, followed by your jumpstart total at the end. The total direct cash compensation payout for Chapter B is: $3,000,000. Note: This is a deferred payout plan which helps mitigates California budget concerns over the next decades, and incentivizes delay for those who opt for chapter B.

What is payout C: No Jump start (2,400,000 / 18 equals = $133,333.33 per year.) No more than 33% of this can be spent per year by parents. After the 17 year old child entitlement recipient turns 18, they take control of their money. They are also eligible to choose any chapter option available to them at that time. Note: This is a child protection payout plan which helps mitigates the chances of parents being wasteful with children's reparations entitlements. 

Are children eligible to apply: Yes
