Tracing Detroit's half-century path toward bankruptcy.
Detroit is broke, but it didn't have to be. An in-depth Free Press analysis of the city's financial history back to the 1950s shows that its elected officials and others charged with managing its finances repeatedly failed — or refused — to make the tough economic and political decisions that might have saved the city from financial ruin.

Re: Ann Arbor Videos...I hope this is the person that posted this, tried to find you on-line to thank you. I sent an email to the address posted on the site but it bounced back.
Hi Nathan,
Thank you so much for posting the videos on the history of Ann Arbor. I just found it as I was googleing my Grandfather, Isaac Nagler. I am the daughter of Monte Nagler, his son and a local photographer. Unfortunately, my Grandfather passed away a few months before I was born. I have been told that he was an amazing man. I have forwarded your website to my entire family. It was very exciting to see his store and his face.
Thank you again,
Melinda Nagler

"Mom, Dad, I'm electric." But does it matter -- and should it matter -- to car companies?

Employers that find interns through social media walk a dangerous path. I can see an opportunity there, but only if you do it strategically. It's not that hard to create an appearance of competence on social media. But in a tough economy, bad hires cost money -- so genuine credentials are more important than ever.

Well, don't most competent employers also, you know, interview the internship candidates? Also, if I'm hiring someone for a social media position, I can get a pretty good sense of their grasp of the medium by scanning through their Twitter stream, for example.

I’m excited to announce that I have written a book on Detroit’s bankruptcy — DETROIT RESURRECTED: TO BANKRUPTCY AND BACK — to be published by W.W. Norton & Co. in April 2016.

This is the story of what happens when a great American city goes broke — and the implications for politics, law, Wall Street, philanthropy, art and democracy.

Come for the courtroom drama, backroom intrigue and dynamic personalities. Stay for the fascinating tale of rebirth.

As we speak, I am venturing into the seventh page of Google search results, and it feels like exploring uncharted waters. Not sure if this speaks well to Google's improved search algorithms or speaks poorly because search engine optimization wizards are wielding tricks to jump ahead of competitors.
