The writing for Detroit has been on the wall for many decades now. I think they did too little too late. The end result is the lower structure of government workers suffer from their lack of due diligence. The taxpayers who kept the machine running absolutely misrepresented.

This hardly started in July though.

What do you do when you don't have enough to keep it running? Who should make up that difference? Who should bail out Detroit?

No easy answers. The end result unacceptable for those in the position to least accept the reality of it all.

It's a shame and there is a lot of blame to go to many areas in why this all occurred.

Great article with good information - although the Bankruptcy of Detroit started way before July.
Thanks for posting Carrie.
