Detroit After Bankruptcy
It has been almost a year since Detroit was bankrupt, and for the first time in years, the city has money to spend. Detroit has developed a four-year financial plan and reached a collective bargaining agreement with a major union, two targets the city agreed to under the bankruptcy. Although the city is obligated to pay almost nothing into employee pensions over the next nine years, an estimated $195 million pension payment could offset the city's recovery.
