With a treasury that is $300 million short of the money needed to provide the most basic public services, the mayor is now urging and incentivizing residents to move from some of the blighted neighborhoods to more stable areas.

and I wonder what a stable area is to them because if I live in a house that is made of brick and has stood for years without damage and is well taken care of, I wouldn't leave it to go live in the rural areas where there is barely any houses and lots of gangs to torment my family. But I live in North Carolina so I don't think I can say too much on this subject. But I just know what I would do if North Carolina ever started that.

I don't think Detroit will be like Chernobyl as there is no radiation. I think when the mayor says move to more stable areas he means that garbage pick up sewage, police and fire rescue may become limited to certian areas.

Yeah I don't really see the point in comparing it to Chernobyl, apart from sensationalising, of course.

Makes more sense to just say is it going to become a ghost town?

The headline is purely for shock value no doubt about it. I have been watching the Detroit issue for a little over a year and wow it's very sad to see... and pretty spooky as Detroit would make one hell of a ghost town.

I realize it doesn't take a major catastrophe to clear out big cities, and one of the problems is that people might not be able to afford to move out. Detroit has depended on the auto industry for many years, now they have to try a different plan. I read a newspaper article a week or so ago stating that they might go for another Motown

I see it as surviving, but as a much smaller city or town.  I don't know if they will lose their pro sports franchise after a while.
Not much anyone can do about it if there are few jobs there.

From the endless years of economic decline in most of America's urban areas, large cities and lesser developed small towns, Detroit is a sign of what's to come and it's gonna be really bad. The USA is a global superpower in its' decline and alike any other superpowers before them: Babylon, Greece, the Romans in Italia and Byzantine, Spain whom ruled nearly all of the Americas, the Islamic/Arab world, the British Empire in all 24 hour time zones, De-Gaulle era France and recently, the USSR or Soviet Russia, to just to name a few, these nations' economies, territorial size and well-being shrinks or decays to have a worsened standard of living and political instability. Our country seems to be waiting in line to fall down the trash bin of world history...and I hope not that never happens in our lifetimes.

I hate to say it, but I have to agree with you AD.  Things aren't what they used to be. It not just Detroit but many other cities are going that way.  Take Gary Indiana it is gone. I am glad I don't live in South East Michigan anymore.

I do fear this also, and it makes me sad.  :(

I don't think people moving out of Detroit have to worry about the gang problem becoming worse.

And if by stable they mean "Safer then Detroit", then all of America is stable too them.

Very sad to see such a once great city fall apart. This is a good doco that I watched last night.
