How Do We Fix Detroit?
There has been a lot of press coverage about the collapse of one of Americans largest cities and what is being done about it. This article does a good job of describing the problems and some of the bright spots in Detroit. It concludes that there is no formula for fixing the problem and that is a good thing. Of course there is no formula for something as complex as restoring one of our major cities. I'm not sure, however, that this is necessarily a good thing. There are lots of cities in the US that face problems similar to those in Detroit. It would be helpful if we had a better understanding of how to approach these problems.
