NPR Interview: Cities Strain to Cover Budget Gaps
Thanks to Camille Gerard for referring me to today's story on NPR's Morning Edition. Don Durfee, research editor of CFO Magazine talks about today's antiquated tax structure and the struggles that many American cities like Pittsburgh and Buffalo are having with budget shortfalls. Don mentions Atlanta, San Diego and Chicago as cities with growing problems. Later, he specifically cites the sales tax as a critical factor.
