- 4:15 pm on Friday, February 7, 2014
This Symposium, presented by the Boston University Review of Banking & Financial Law, brings together practitioners, judges, and leading scholars to discuss key financial issues arising in debt-laden communities across the nation, including: historic bankruptcies in Detroit and San Bernardino, pension obligation conflicts, and the tension between austerity measures and bailouts. Perspectives on municipal use of volatile securities and the effect of voter mobility on local finance policy, among others, will be presented. Participants will examine how state and local governments can navigate conflicting interests to generate workable financing solutions.
