Mayor David Bing on the Future of Detroit

Friday, May 04, 2012

Detroit has come to represent for many Americans the worst of what the recession has done to the country’s once-indomitable manufacturing capitals. It’s now the poorest major city in the US. In the past decade, the city population has declined by 25 percent, and it’s regularly cited as among the most dangerous cities in the country.

The city is in the midst of numerous efforts to stave off bankruptcy, from major budget cuts to appeals for state and federal funding. Mayor Dave Bing explains how his administration is trying to save Detroit.

Years of corruption and "progressive" politics may have something to do with it as well.
