>They just make shittier cars than their competitors, at a non competitive price.

In all fairness the American Auto industry produces plenty of good competetive vehicles nowadays and when it was pushing the poorly build landboats and plasticy explosive compacts they did offer them at lower costs than most of their competetors to at the very least compensate.

Crysler aside(who did manage to turn a profit in the 90s until they were bought out by diamler and we got things like the sebreing) GM and Ford did start turning the ship around during the turn of the milenia. Ford managed to turn around a bit quicker because as it turns out they already made fantastic competetive vehicles, they just sold them in europe, but GM was slowly turning it’s brands around even before the economy tanked and the auto industry bled red.

I don’t think rustbelt cities will ever reach the same glory they once held thanks to the fact that factory work will never be as big in the US again. Yeah we’re starting industrialize a bit more again, but that’s thanks to robotics and we aren’t going to have cities of hundreds of thousands sprout up to maintain these robots. I’m optomistic that rising gas prices and a renewed interest in urban living is going to lead to something of a renewal of most of the city areas.
