This week let’s use the crowdsource to discuss the conditions, key players and significance of the fiscal crisis of 1974.
Some questions we might consider: How did the fiscal crisis come to be, how was it resolved, how did it change the city, who were the important players and what roles did they play, and what is the legacy (or long-lasting impacts) of the fiscal crisis on the city today?
You may refer to either reading assigned this week, though the fiscal crisis specifically is discussed in Joshua Freeman’s piece.
REMINDER: You are not posting to the blog for this assignment. You will include your thoughts and responses in the comments section of this post.
Comments due by 12noon, Monday 2/13/17.
