Dire economic times in the Motor City have spawned a war of sorts between small business owners and the City of Detroit. Owners claim you can’t count on the city to help stem the wave of crime that has sprouted since the city’s economic collapse. And the city says small business owners are not complying with the law. “Accidentally, the city has created sort of an anarchistic culture in the city, where many entrepreneurs, especially the smaller retailers and restauranteurs, simply forego getting the required permits that the city is demanding of them because it’s too expensive and because it often takes too long, and sometimes the inspections that are done are of low quality,” says Michael LaFaive of the Mackinac Center for Public Policy. “Entrepreneurs have said, ‘Look, let them catch me if they can.’ Right now the city has decided that, ‘We’re going to try to catch you.’” Check out both sides of the argument on this edition of Reason TV.
