In the ‘50’s Detroit’s population was about 2 million. At that time it had the highest standard of living in the United States. Some called Detroit the “Paris of the west.” Detroit has been almost exclusively under Democrat control since the early ‘60’s. Detroit’s population today is about 700,000.
It seems the opinions of Reich and Henderson support DeKruif’s hypothesis. In my opinion liberalism defeated Detroit.
If we do not learn from history, history will repeat itself — it’s just a matter of time!
