Deteriorating Detroit

Feral houses

Some amazing pictures of rotting neighbourhoods and houses consumed by their own gardens. Detroit portrayed as I've not seen before. It looks closer to a lost city than an industrial giant.

  • Easy to forget that the housing market crash has been underway for two years now.

  • The ultimate in consumerism – disposable housing.

    Car manufacturers must currently be regretting their striving for reliability and longevity in their product.

  • “Car manufacturers must currently be regretting their striving for reliability and longevity in their product.”

    But those manufacturers who got left behind have been brutally treated by the buying public.

    It wasn’t really rocket science for the manufacturers – stopping cars rusting wasn’t that hard, and if you manufacture your moving parts to closer engineering tolerances, they last much longer, and fail less frequently.

    Car production got ahead of itself, and not replacing your car is an easy way to save money when things are tight.

    I will probably indulge a new Audi towards the end of next year, when they will still be desperate for sales. Three years after, things should be a little more buoyant, and the used market will be starved of stock – so depreciation should be modest..
