    As a Detroiter pretty much every economic development opportunity for the past 40 years has been sabotaged by the local suburbs constantly explaining that Detroit is a massive hell-hole you should not invest in. It never seemed to occur to them that only a total moron builds a new auto plant across the damn street from a hell-hole.

    Don't get me wrong, our tendency to explain that you should ignore those idiots because they're racist was not a great response, but at the moment I'm not really in the mood to be mature about this.

    •  I agree, but the point... (0+ / 0-)

      I'm trying to make is that while the main impact of this will be on the city of Detroit, the impact won't be limited to the city of Detroit--something that those cities, and the county administrations should have been and should be aware of in making economic decisions that affect the economic well-being of entire regions.  It's really in no one's best interest to let our cities fail.
