Detroit, a rust belt city that has a lot in common with Cleveland, has declared bankruptcy. It owes $18 billion. That's billion with a B. On the Sound of Ideas, we'll talk about what drove the Motor City over the economic cliff and what lessons can be learned by other industrial cities bleeding jobs and population. How does our financial picture look? What will keep Cleveland from becoming Detroit?
