ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the reduction in the population of Detroit between 2000 and 2010 alone. It informs that Detroit lost a remarkable 25 percent of its population, as massive long-term disinvestment, the collapse of the public infrastructure, and the near-death of the American auto industry devastated the city.
