The latest ABI Podcast features ABI Resident Scholar Kara Bruce speaking with George Mason University Prof. Frank Shafroth about Detroit and lessons to be learned from the current state of municipalities in distress.

Shafroth is the principal investigator for a study by George Mason’s State and Local Government Leadership Center titled “The Great Challenge Facing America’s Cities.” Shafroth talks about the study, which examines the financial situations of Detroit, Chicago, San Bernardino, Calif., Pittsburgh, Providence, R.I. and Baltimore to provide insights for municipalities that may face financial struggles in the future.
