Karen DeCoster“Anarcho-Detroit: In the Absence of Government, A New Way Forward Emerges” with Karen DeCoster

On this edition of Demanufacturing Consent: Guillermo is joined by writer, CPA, and creator of the blog “Detroit: From Rust to Riches,” Karen DeCoster.  Guillermo and Karen discuss the economics of the city of Detroit, what led to its bankruptcy, and what it says about the broader economic problems of the United States as a whole.  Karen explains how the ineptness of government and the deterioration of bureaucratic regulation in Detroit has spawned an “anarchistic culture” within the city, and allowed for new businesses, entrepreneurs and “startups” to flourish outside the control of the state.
