Is Detroit Making a Comeback?
Lyman Stone

The decline in overall population seems to have set in way before German and Japanese car makers sent GM, Ford and Chrysler into crisis mode. So I wonder if the early decline may be related to “The Big Three” setting up new production plants in other parts of the US, namely with lower union activities?

Else I would like to suggest that the growth or shrinking of wealth is a better indicator for the success of a city than its change in population.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
