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.
