Detroit is Bankrupt
Detroit files the largest muninciple bankruptcy case in the history of the United States. Double ouch! Governor Rick Snyder explains the reasoning behind filing for bankruptcy and what it will mean for the future of Michigan.
Once upon a time, the city was hailed as a model for progressive social ideals and unionism now it has officially become the model of urban decline. I am hopeful this status will act as a wake up call for civic leadership to step up and break the chains of failure from the past. It is clear what doesn’t work for the city of Detroit, now is the time to begin to put into place evidence-based practices that do work for the citizens and businesses in the city.
What do you think would be a best practice solution for Detroit?
