June 12, 2009: Many cities in the United States have gone into stark decline and lost much of their population and economic power. The American government is looking at a plan first pioneered in Flint, Michigan which involves knocking down entire districts of a city and returning them to nature in order to concentrate the population in smaller centers to keep them economically viable (as a spread-out population will increase the price of all services drastically). Possible locations for such a scheme include Detroit, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Baltimore and Memphis, Tennessee.
