What Detroit needs to do is reinvent itself, but they didn't do that. Hard to reinvent when your best ideas are to give your library janitors business cards.
Successful cities have to constantly find ways to make themselves new. The things that made Detroit an attractive place for the auto industry would make Detroit an attractive place for other industries, but the city has to adapt itself to lure those new industries in.
They didn't do it, so they're a shell of their former self.
