I was reading an old NY Times article that is not related specifically to Detroit, but this statement stuck out:


Should we be worried about the increasingly oligarchic nature of American society? Yes, and not just because a rising economic tide has failed to lift most boats. Both history and modern experience tell us that highly unequal societies also tend to be highly corrupt. There's an arrow of causation that runs from diverging income trends to Jack Abramoff and the K Street project.

Considering current events, I think the city of Detroit serves as a perfect example of this supposed correlation.
