Business was driven out of the city a long time ago by confiscatory taxing policies
Under Democrat control since 1962, Detroit's Socialistic policies eventually caused massive overall failure ....... Detroit is living (just living) proof.
What's interesting about 2013's economic growth is that it breaks down more by region than by red state/blue state and tax policy. Despite the Republican bashing of California. it actually has a faster growth now than most of the Red southern states. The South Red states, for the most part, had poor economic performance. Under conservative control for nearly their entire existence (if it was Dixiecrat or Republican) parts of that region are borderline third world.
You're theorizing that Detroit's ills were brought on it by being ruled by Democrats. I merely pointed out that economic success doesn't seem to hinge on being ruled by either party. A city or state can dogmatically follow GOP policy straight into bankruptcy as easily Democratic policy.
I pointed out that the 700,00 plus cannot afford to pay the City Council for a water supply so I did give an accurate point.
Again, since your skull is 20% denser than lead................
.....I find that very immoral and distasteful but he represents a deplorable side of the nation that regards all poverty as self inflicted when it is NOT.....
Dan Gilbert already had a fortune from founding the mortgage company Quicken Loans. Now he stands to make even more by buying office buildings on the cheap in Detroit's economically depressed downtown and convincing tenants to move into them to help the ailing city. It's working, he tells Bob Simon, and for anyone who would say he's a greedy capitalist, his answer is he is essentially doing a lot of good for a city that's seen a lot of bad.
After three years, when Gilbert moved his company's headquarters to downtown, the billionaire has managed to lure 90 major tenants in addition to his own workers. Using more than a billion dollars of his own, he has revitalized the downtown, buying buildings as cheap as the cost of one year's rent for a similar space in New York, refurbishing and then renting them to the likes of Chrysler and Twitter.
