Abstract:

Many cities have struggled with the decline of key industries, from Philadelphia's shipyards to New York's textile industry, but Detroit?which is now in bankruptcy?is both a victim of the decline of the Michigan automobile industry and a cause of it. A city with a history of civil disorder?it is the only American city occupied on three separate occasions by federal troops?its poisonous blend of race-based politics and union domination has left it impoverished and diminished. Once the fourth-largest city in the country, it is today smaller than Fort Worth. Once the nation's most prosperous.
