FR3.30.02 Revisiting Municipal Fiscal Sustainability: A Comparative Study of Detroit vs. New York City

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Using fiscal data from the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy, this research compares two cities of interest (Detroit and New York City), and conducts time-series analysis from 1977 to 2012. I aim to 1) compare fiscal arrangements, and fiscal sustainability measures between the two cities; 2) detect possible structural breaks when fiscal shifts occur at points in time; 3) identify major determinants that expose cities to fiscal volatility, and their potential impact on municipal fiscal sustainability.
