REQUIUM FOR DETROIT PART 7

$10K profit per big SUV.  Profits were up.  How long would it last.  We all know it did not last forever.

Gas price spikes,  housing lending crisis, and a global economic crisis put the triple whammy  on Detroit.

The golden goose has died.

Now 33.8% of people in Detroit live in poverty.

So what to do?  Urban farming is growing in Detroit.  One of the fastest growing movements in the USA.  Detroit is on the leading edge of this.

What we see even in the death of something new life can grow out of that death for a betterment of an area and people.
