Detroit's Creditors Asked to Accept Losses of 90%

"The emergency manager who was sent to reverse the fortunes of this financially troubled city asked some of its creditors on Friday to accept pennies on the dollar as he laid out his plan for tackling Detroit's staggering debt, kick-starting negotiations that could determine whether the city is headed to bankruptcy court," the New York Times reports.

"The proposal includes an offer that amounts to less than 10 cents on the dollar on some of the city's unfinanced debt obligations like unsecured bonds and a portion of unfunded pension liabilities, which together total more than $11 billion."
