Chicago Fed Letter, No. 318a, January 2014
What Happens after Detroit’s Bankruptcy? Lessons in Reform
Detroit recently filed for bankruptcy, becoming the largest municipality to seek protection under the U.S. Bankruptcy Code’s Chapter 9. In the wake of Detroit’s filing, the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago and the Citizens Research Council of Michigan convened a conference on November 7–8, 2013, to identify strategies to prevent municipalities’ fiscal decline, as well as mechanisms to restore struggling cities’ financial sustainability and economic growth.
