Claims that total defaults in the municipal bond market could reach $100 billion are vastly exaggerated. Teachers will starve, police and firemen will go on strike, and there will be rioting in the streets before a single interest payment is missed to bond holders. Defaults will rise, but it will be from two to only 20, not the hundreds that Whitney is forecasting. Have I seen This movie before?
