Welcome to the future. These pictures are from an American city whose population has fallen from 1,849,568 in 1950 to 910,920 in 2009 as its industrial base has eroded, and government policies have destroyed the incentive to work along with missteps and mismanagement by its largest companies.  I'm sure many of you can guess the name of this town.  More pictures of the abandoned buildings in this city can be found here.
