In the last 50 years, there have been many plans to save Detroit. People use words like "renaissance," "revival," and "catalyst" to describe them.

On today's show, we visit the places these plans were meant to change, and we talk to an urban planner about why these grand dreams didn't turn out the way the city hoped.

Music: Sammy Davis, Jr.'s "Hello Detroit." Find us: Twitter / Facebook / Spotify / Tumblr. Download the Planet Money iPhone App.
