  • Should States Be Allowed to Declare Bankruptcy? | Institute of Government and Public Affairs
    Newt Gingrich have argued in recent weeks for a state oriented bankruptcy plan When a business or an individual declares bankruptcy a court formally orders them to set priorities some people get paid some get paid less and some do not get paid at all Illinois has been doing this for years so in a sense Illinois is already bankrupt said Dr Daniel McMillen another IGPA economist and professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign Proponents say bankruptcy would give states with the worst fiscal situations a new form of relief However opponents argue that bankruptcy will only further aggravate existing tensions between the state and lenders and with major institutions who are owed big sums Perhaps the largest sum the state must pay and the No 1 contributor to long term debt is pension obligations These payments compete for funds with current and future obligations such as school funding maintaining roads and health care Facing the prospect of stopping the essential services citizens need now to honor pension contracts Dye said states might see bankruptcy as a last ditch effort out of insolvency However bankruptcy could have serious consequences for future borrowing Lenders would increase interest rates to compensate for the risk incurred when states can legally walk away from debt And according to McMillen Illinois already has the worst bondrating in the union The proposal has lost steam in the past week as leaders from both sides of the aisle regard it as fiscally irresponsible For this reason said Dye our sources advising on state investing say the idea does not have much credibility Dye said an alternative idea to bankruptcy is setting up a pension benefit guarantee for government employees which would be administered by an agency separate from the state government This would allow

    economic growth The University of Illinois Flash Index climbed for the seventh consecutive month in December reaching 94 9 That is up from a level of 94 2 in November but is still below the 100 level that divides decline and growth The monthly Flash Index is compiled by IGPA and is a weighted average of the growth rates in corporate earnings personal income and retail sales The improvement over the past seven months reflects the growing optimism about the economy both nationally and for the state of Illinois said U of I economist J Fred Giertz who compiles the Flash Index for IGPA There is general agreement that a double dip recession is unlikely and that the economy will continue its slow recovery pace in 2011 Giertz said The continuing concern is the slow response of the unemployment rate This is the result of the relatively slow expansion where the number of new jobs created is insufficient to absorb new entrants to the work force as well as those who are unemployed The national unemployment rate remains near the recession high at 9 8 percent However the Illinois unemployment rate dipped to 9 6 percent in November falling below the national rate for the first time since January 2007 Unfortunately this occurred because the national rate rose Giertz said This is a truly unusual occurrence because the Illinois unemployment rate has been below the national rate in only five of the past 131 months since January 2000 he said In real terms corporate income tax and sales tax collections increased from the same month last year while the individual income tax was down slightly Giertz said The sales tax results likely reflect a relatively strong holiday sales season compared to the last two years The Flash Index is a
