Detroit: Give us six months, we'll give you a recovery
- Around one-third of the city is now abandoned or derelict, 60% of children in Detroit currently live in poverty and unemployment is well above the national average.
The government agencies and infrastructure of Detroit are also in shambles. Forty-percent of street lights don’t work, the average police response time is 58 minutes, the murder rate is the highest it has been in 40 years, and only about one-third of the city's ambulances are operational.
