    The conclusions of the panel discussion will be:

    Businesses must face economic reality; they must be able to distinguish real economic growth from an economic bubble.

    Cities do not have to face economic reality because they can tax, cut, and borrow. When cities eventually go bankrupt anyway – when they are no longer able to tax, cut, and borrow, they can always blame the economy, “Who could of known”?
