Abstract

In July the city of Detroit filed for bankruptcy, the largest American city ever to do so. Just across the Detroit River lies the Canadian city of Windsor, Ontario, which has historically shared a similar reliance on automotive manufacturing, and yet has not suffered as sharp an economic downturn. Bill Anderson looks at the close links between the two cities, writing that while Windsor may have performed better economically, like Detroit, it can no longer rely on the automotive industry to guarantee long term growth and employment and must diversify its interests.
