The "Broken Window Theory" goes full throttle!
"US cities may have to be bulldozed in order to survive"
"Dozens of US cities may have entire neighbourhoods bulldozed as part of drastic "shrink to survive" proposals being considered by the Obama administration to tackle economic decline." http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/financetopics/financialcrisis/5516536/US-cities-may-have-to-be-bulldozed-in-order-to-survive.html
"The real question is not whether these cities shrink – we're all shrinking – but whether we let it happen in a destructive or sustainable way," said Mr Kildee. "Decline is a fact of life in Flint. Resisting it is like resisting gravity."

%.. and it's one, two, three,
what are we working for?
don't ask me I don't give a hoot,
next stop is filled with loot!
five, six, seven,
open up your city gates!
ain't no time to wonder why
cause WHOOPEE we all gonna buy!
Come on developers,
don't be slow,
let's shrink wrap America agogo.
Plenty green Ameros to be made
supplying sustainable principles
in the shade,
so put away your pride
and scrawl up your deal,
it's gonna be one heck of a steal!
Be the first one on your block
to have your home replaced by a rock!%
