NYC in serious financial trouble

NY Post -New York City is careening closer to all-out financial bankruptcy for the first time since Mayor Abraham Beame ran the city more than 40 years ago, experts say.

As tax-fleeced businesses and individuals flee en masse, and city public spending surges into the stratosphere, financial analysts say Gotham is perilously near total fiscal disaster.

Long-term debt is now more than $81,100 per household, and Mayor Bill de Blasio is ramping up to spend as much as $3 billion more in the new budget than the current $89.2 billion.

“The city is running a deficit and could be in a real difficult spot if we had a recession, or a further flight of individuals because of tax reform,” said Milton Ezrati, chief economist of Vested.

....And the rich people will flee NYC, and it will go back to the griminess of the '70s but with the crap-futuristic edge of the post-aughts. We will see "Blade Runner" mixed with "Taxi Driver", with a dash of an abandoned Apple store.
