On July 18, 2013, the city of Detroit declared bankruptcy. The story of Detroit's bankruptcy was simple enough: Allow capitalism to grow the city, campaign against income inequality, tax the job creators until they flee, increase government spending in order to boost employment, promise generous pension plans to keep people voting for failure. Rinse, wash and repeat. That's how a city with 1.8 million people in 1950 becomes a city with 700,000 in 2013. That's why a city that once served as a magnet for industry began thinking about requiring city employees to live within the city limits for seven years. And that's how Motor City turned into a location shoot for "28 Days Later".
