This study examines how declining cities have become key sites for tailored market interventions, focusing on the collapse of Detroit's land market. It explains that long term decline has been exacerbated by legislative changes orchestrated by think tanks seeking to reinvogorate the market for private property while using homeownership for neighborhood stabilization. It explains the trajectory of these policies of market fundamentalism and indicates that this approach involves a revitalization of the conditions for predatory capital accumulation in a declining city
