I used to live in Detroit. When Detroit started to go down the first thing that the city and state was going to do was to put casinos in Detroit. This was going to be the salvation. It might have generated a little tax revenue but it did nothing for the city. Why? It is a net zero. You take money from city residents and give it to another. No new products, nothing that causes money to flow in. This is why casinos is always the recommendation of brain dead politicians.
