Event Description

Getting out of a hole and not falling back in must start with an understanding of how one got there in the first place. Is Illinois on the brink of fiscal collapse (despite the illusion of a balanced budget) because of bad politics, bad policies, bad leaders (too corrupt, too weak, too timid) or bad luck? Learn about people, policies, events and circumstances that got Illinois to this point and what is needed to set a different fiscal course for Illinois.

Presented by Kent Redfield,  Professor Emeritus, Political Studies, University of Illinois – Springfield
