It's good to see companies trying to revitalize Detroit, but to fix that city, some serious changes in government have to occur. What destroyed Detroit was 40 years of anti-business, tax the rich policies that have completely failed. In the 60's, Detroit was called the "model city" because it embodied these ideas from President Johnsons Great Society. Now, most of the businesses and "rich people" have been driven out and the city is in shambles. Sadly, many people refuse to see that government policy has caused much of Detroit's problems.
