    Those are the things that really killed Detroit
    I beleive it did indeed have an effect.
    The liberals and da unions operate hand in hand ( or whatever metophor you want to use) and da union tells the liberals what to do.
    They do it to get money and votes and this is the result.

    There are numerous auto factories and supply manufacturers in the USA.
    What happened??

    Why did all of those things you listed happen?

    It's as though you think it was "just one of those things."

    There are reasons.................

    You are blaming the Union for mistakes of management, do you believe the management in the auto industry are liberals? If not,your kicking the wrong dog.

    Blackstone, it's hopeless. Go ahead and knock yourself out, but I think it's a waste of time to try and convince those who know nothing about Detroit that their ideological notions about what happened there are wrong.

    Houston has abandoned warehouses too...and a 1-5 wards were poor folks live. Do to environmental concerns much of this real estate stand abandoned and crumbling. Some of it eventually gets torn down and something takes its place. I'm sure detriot is no different than houston or any other big city. Japan is a small country and they don't have the dirt to build new on like we do...so land is rare so I would find it hard to believe that no commercial property does not get reused when someone leaves it.

    Visit Holland and you will see the most utilized farm land that is farmed with the best practices to maximize production...because they have so few acres....unlike Texas where you see farmers go around rough spots because it is cheaper to not use than put in production.

    Same story with abandoned buildings.

    Not the Major's fault...just cheaper to move outside to the suburbs and not pay to support a crumbling infrastructure

    Now that I have read the entire thread....it died because jobs were lost. Those jobs were lost to automation and cheaper labor outside our boarders that had to compete against a cheap Yen in the eighties. Detriot was caught off guard and management did not react soon enough but in the managements defense, cost had skyrocketed here because of inflation that was the fault of government. Republican President...Democrat congress

    The town I was born in Port Arther, TX is a refinery town that was booming town even during the great depression....died from automation of the oil refineries. Not unions fault...just advances in technology that made it were a crack unit could be run by 2 people versus 200. Killed the city of Janus Joplin. I would not go into that city in the dark now. Democrats nor Republican could have saved it...and welfare did not kill it either
