Detroit Casinos: Revitalizing the city or in need of Resuscitation?

The three casinos--MGM Grand, Motorcity, Greektown--have played a major role in attempt to revive the city's economy, along with projects like the construction of Ford Field and Comerica Park.  With that in mind, it may be a bit dispiriting to learn that in May 2008, Greektown Casino filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy.  The filing, however, was due to a rather simple financing issue, and has not affected the business at the casino or the hotel, and all three casinos continue to thrive, steadily fostering a staple of economic and social stability in a city in dire need.
