Detroit emergency manager Kevyn Orr is due to unveil his restructuring plan for the debt-laden city today to public labor unions, bondholders and bond insurers, including MBIA (MBI) and Assured Guaranty (AGO). Orr will reportedly try to persuade creditors to accept as little as 10 cents on the dollar for the city's debt. He has indicated that creditors would be far better off compromising now than taking their chances with a Chapter 9 bankruptcy filing.
