A native Californian, Edward C. Hartman has observed the effects of rampant population growth on the nation’s most populous state. A new role as a grandfather in 1996 led him to question the underlying causes of the state’s failing fortunes and declining quality of life for its citizens and for future generations. Since then, he has been gathering data in preparation for writing the Population Fix.
Edward C. Hartman spent 28 years in the telecommunications industry and runs his own Financial services business. He lives
with his wife in the San Francisco Bay Area. He has two children and four grandchildren.
