Some pretty interesting pictures of Detroit in this article.

I guess it didn't matter whether we elected Clinton or Trump.

RE: If You Want To See The Future Of America Just Look At Detroit
While Detroit has been mismanaged for decades and deserves to go bankrupt, it is interesting to note that the $18 billion or so of Detroit's liabilities (owed to around 30,000 retirees) are dwarfed by, for example, the $180 billion AIG bailout (of which about $12 billion went to Goldman Sachs, arguably benefitting probably no more than a few thousand of the top executives), not to mention the $3 trillion Iraq War debacle.

Again, this is not to suggest that Detroit should be bailed out, but rather to indicate the monstrous misallocation of resources by the USA in the past decade.

I think I'm in favor of bailing out municipalities before banks/corporations and never ending war.

"Detroit’s bankruptcy filing is one depressing read. Poverty, crime, blight – you name the malady and there’s plenty of data to back it up. And unfortunately, Detroit’s not alone. You may be wondering which city hits the wall next.

I’m not making predictions, but I’ve looked at one indicator that may offer some clues: population loss.

As any good Ponzi Schemer will tell you, your future looks much better when there are more people moving in than moving out. Once the population change turns negative, a vicious circle can take hold, and that’s exactly what we saw in Detroit."

Those attending the iProperty.com International Property Expo in Singapore, to learn about "the best property in Asia" can win a free house by attending.

Guess where the house is located.

One might think somewhere in Asia because that's the focus of the expo. But No! The free house is located in the mother of all choice spots, Detroit, Michigan.

Note the creative description: "Yes, it’s true we are giving away a home! This is a gorgeous 3 bedroom brick home located in an excellent neighbourhood just a stone’s throw away from key facilities like the Triumph Hospital and the Bel Air Shopping Centre. It boasts a garage and basement and has just been newly furnished. It’s Freehold Landed U.S property with 3 bedroom and 1 bathroom. A lot size of 4,225 sq ft with Garage, basement and tenant included! This property has a net selling price US $38,000."

Is this ad supposed to entice people to attend or scare them away?

They wanted the white taxpayers to leave the city, and they did just that after the '67 riots and the election of Coleman Young. Detroit made it's own bed, let them lay in it.

"Tenant included?"

My money says it's some no-good, shithead squatter that the new owner will have to contend with.

RE: If You Want To See The Future Of America Just Look At Detroit
That's how it was called originally. French explorers & fur traders were the first to establish all of these cities. Anglos just fucked up the pronunciation.

E.g. Des Moines (pronounced dey mwahn) became des moynes
Détroit (pronounced day-t'hwaw) became deh-troyt
Baton Rouge (pronounced batawng-whoozh) became batton rooj

etc.
