Detroit Symbolizes America's Decline

by Stephen Lendman

Media scoundrels suppress the truth.

America's economy is sick. It's getting sicker. Coverup and denial conceal reality. Census data say record numbers of US counties are dying. It's over one in three. 

It reflects population shifts and Depression conditions. America's decline gets little attention.

Since 1981, 42 US municipalities declared bankruptcy. Ten did so in the past four years. Expect more to follow. Hard times getting harder assures it.

Detroit once symbolized industrial America. Might Motown resembles a ghost town. It's dying. It nears bankruptcy.

Fifty years ago it was America's fifth largest city. It's now 18th. In the last decade, half the population left. It's America's ghetto. Its neighborhoods are in disrepair. They're decaying and dying.
