DEMOS Briefing on What Caused the Detroit Bankruptcy
, Wed, Nov 20, 8:30am – MSU Detroit Center
Detroit has filed the largest municipal bankruptcy in the United States but there has been a remarkable lack of in depth analysis of Detroit’s financial data by those with expertise in municipal finance.
On Wednesday, November 20, 2013 at 8:30 am, Demos is sponsoring a briefing on their new report about the Detroit Bankruptcy. The report, which is being released on the same day, was researched by Wallace Turbeville, a senior fellow at Demos and an expert in municipal finance. Mr. Turbeville, reviewed several years of Detroit financial data in his effort to determine the contributing causes of the largest municipal bankruptcy in American history.
The briefing will feature Mr. Turbeville and Saqib Bhatti, a fellow at the Nathan Cummings Foundation. They will discuss key findings of the research. There will be an opportunity for questions and answers. A report summary will be made available to attendees.
Community groups, clergy, activists, elected officials, civil rights groups and labor unions are invited to attend. You are free to pass this invite on to others.
