The Craig Fahle Show

What Can the Detroit Berlin Connection Teach Us?

Friday, October 7

Bruce Katz of the Brookings Institute and Wayne State University Urban Planning Professor Robin Boyle join Martina Guzman and Craig Fahle to discuss The Detroit Berlin Connection. How can Detroit utilize the comparison to move forward in reinventing our city? Detroit's grassroots energy is an important driver in the current resurgence. Grassroots is unlikely to deliver the tens of thousands of jobs the region needs. Berlin's game-changer was the fact that it is the federal capital and grew through the infusion of massive amounts of federal money. Is there a comparable game-changer for Detroit?
