Nori Gerardo Lietz, Senior Lecturer of Business Administration, Harvard Business School

Detroit is the canary in the coal mine on the issue of unfunded pension and health care liabilities. Had the city not declared bankruptcy, it was projected that 67% of every incremental revenue dollar would have been allocated to these legacy benefits by 2017. Yet even after the bankruptcy filing, Morningstar reported that Detroit’s pension funds were 92% funded. The city reported its unfunded liabilities were approximately $650 million; the emergency manager estimated them at $3.5 billion. This alarming issue potentially affects most municipalities and states and raises the question: Is this a new systemic risk to the US economy? What does this mean for other cities? Is Chicago next?

John A. Davis (DBA 1982), Fellow in Executive Education, Harvard Business School

You’d have to have been sleeping under a rock to miss the family war and media frenzy over Market Basket, the Boston-based, family-owned supermarket chain. The confrontation between two cousins (both named Arthur Demoulas) over control of the company was finally resolved with a buyout of one branch by the rival branch, with the help of debt and private equity. In this webinar, Professor John Davis explains why family businesses need to change their mindset that family ownership groups are permanent groups that are difficult to enter and leave, and how the shift to ownership teams will bring reduced family conflict. Davis addresses lessons from the Market Basket case that will help family businesses prevent and manage ownership disputes.
