In this month's Municipal Strategy Report we discuss recent editorial in the Wall Street Journal entitled “The Reason Behind the Obama Non-Recovery” that identifies the economic policies of the Obama Administration as a single cause for the severity of the recession and the slow rate of growth during the recovery.
Additionally, the MSR features the following:
- In “Down-Ballot Races Poised to Maintain Business as Usual in Illinois” we examine if elections for Illinois state legislature have the potential to impact the political balance in the state.
- In “Pension Obligation Bonds Update” we provide an update of this year’s activity, as there appears to be renewed interest in the issuance of POB bonds.
- In “Electric Utility Comparison” we analyze differences in operational and financial performance by three Aa1-rated public power entities.
