What's The Data Point? Episode 15 - 60+  [You can download What's The [Data] Point? wherever you get your podcasts, including on iTunes]

For this episode of the podcast, something different: an excerpt from a live Citizens Budget Commission event where two experts discussed government debt and financing, looking at Detroit and Puerto Rico as examples, and evaluating what lessons may apply to New York City and what kind of risk the city is facing with its debt. The two experts, who have a combined more than 60 years of experience working on the overarching topic, Renee Boicourt and Kent Hiteshew, spoke at a CBC event.
