Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Detroit is ground zero for the failure of US post-WW2 urban policy:

  1.  Encouragement of Suburbia: check
  2.  White Flight: check
  3.  City government run by corporations: check
  4.  Failure to maintain public infrastructure: check
  5.  Idiotic "re-vitalization" schemes: check
  6.  Low population density per acre: check
  7.  Elimination of Public Transportation: check
  8.  Failure to maintain Public Services: check
  9.  Appalling educational system: check

and on & on & so forth.
