Business Insider recently released a list of the most bankrupt cities in the nation. In response, the Mercatus Center at GMU’s blog Neighborhood Effects discussed problems contributing to this status (unions, in particular). The post also highlights Detroit Mayor David Bing's efforts to close his city's $325 million deficit.
If you are interested in finding out if your city is on the list, check out this post and feel free to publish the content on your blog. The link to Business Insider's original list is included in the post. You can find the post here: http://neighborhoodeffects.mercatus.org/2010/04/13/battling-bankruptcy-in-americas-cities/
