Despite assurances from Clint Eastwood and Eminem, Detroit's rebirth may be on hold, as the city is on a fast track to run out of money before summer, and things are getting increasingly testy between the state's Republican governor and the city's Democratic mayor.
The year 2010 began with the earthquake heard round the world and ended with a political shake-up in Washington.
"Something has to happen. I think what everybody agrees is that the status quo is not sustainable. The city is out of money," said Michigan State University economist Charles Ballard.
"It reminds me a lot of the debt crisis in Europe," Mr. Ballard said. "The Greeks are resentful for this feeling they are being told what to do by the Germans, but the status quo was not tenable."
