Kid Rock: "Detroit is a Blank Canvas"
Kid Rock was on CNBC to talk about Detroit's business and community successes with Dan Gilbert of Quicken Loans. Kid is right on this count: It's not the government that is making things happen, it's the people.
I am a CPA working in the healthcare industry by day, and an economist, writer, researcher, and blogger by any other time of the week. This blog will be about the uniqueness of the Detroit resurgence due to an inept and powerless local bureaucracy (government) that cannot possibly keep up with regulating the renaissance of entrepreneurial and community ventures. The lens through which I view things is very different from the mainstream, or even the scattered blogosphere. This will not be a standard "this is my life in Detroit" blog. Though, I will intersperse some of that stuff, along with my Detroit photography, to keep the blog varied and intellectually interesting.
