Can Illinois Avoid Bankruptcy? Is the Progressive Tax a Solution?

ILLINOIS VOICES, March 16, 2019 – We talk One-on-One with Mark Glennon, founder and Executive Editor of WirePoints, an online publication focusing on financial and political issues. We hear his views on what he sees as the key issues facing Illinois’ financial future, on Governor Pritzker’s proposed Progressive Income tax, and on the problems of pension funding.

Mr Glennon is an attorney with extensive background in both bankruptcy and debt issues — as well as a successful investor. He brings his wealth of financial understanding to the issues facing Illinois and Chicago, and how the burden of unfunded pension obligations threaten the financial future of both the City of Chicago, and the State of Illinois.
