Uh..could it be because no on has any money now? Sorry Detroit. You missed the boat back in the 80s when Canada was doing casinos. You should've thought about it back then...would've saved Detroit before we got into Republican moral jurisdiction and the nation went under. Thanks to their banker freinds and war mongering companies.

Dummies in government just do not understand economics.
Federal state county and city governments take too much money out of the economy. The average person on the street just isn't making it in America anymore and certainly doesn't have money to waste in casinos.
Lower taxes is a good first step. People the consumers drive or improve economies. governments can not do not spend a path out of recession.
ask Russia cuba and other governments that have tried.
Then reduce the paper work permits other BS you put in the path of business make it easier and cheaper for them to open start or move a business to your slums.
Keep the unions out.
Trying thinking like a business person not a greedy limited vision politician.
what features would attract you to a city like Detroit or any city then created those features and advertise
Have you seen those ads for NY??
they are promoting enterprise business zones. if you or I open , or move a business to NY in one of those zones we pay no taxes for 5 years if we provide 50 jobs or more and keep the business there.
They over taxed over regulated business and business responded by moving to any place that had a better business environment.
You have choices.
what you tax you get less of what you subsidize you get more of.
do you want more jobs more working people?
or do you want more welfare queens drug dealers , illegal immigrants, criminals?
you already know how to attract and how to drive out people.
use your skill set. Tax the hell out of illegals , drug black gangs, criminals, corrupt unions.
