A Creative Borrowing Boom: VOSD Radio

We go inside the new trend in public school borrowing that could cost taxpayers of the future dearly.

 

On the latest episode of VOSD Radio, we go inside the exotic new wave of public school borrowing that could cost taxpayers of the future dearly. They’re known as capital appreciation bonds and allow school districts to borrow money now without raising taxes. The catch: they don’t even start paying the interest for decades, pushing off today’s costs on tomorrow’s taxpayers.

Also, we fact check mayoral hopeful Bob Filner and dish out the Hero (City Attorney Jan Goldsmith) and Goat (Filner) of the week. Listen here.

VOSD Radio also airs on Newsradio FM 95.7 and AM 600 KOGO on Saturdays at 7:30 a.m. Subscribe to the podcast here.
