There is no need to "bail them out" make Detroit the great city

It could be, maybe one of the greatest cities in the western hemisphere.
I have a thought, why not free Detroit to become a libertarian city? Maybe on the order of what Hong Kong was, free and independent from the mainland USA. A free international city, based on libertarian principals. A Tax free enterprise zone, no immigration restrictions, no minimum wage laws, no wealth transfers, no entitlements, very limited regulations and only basic taxing for the essentials. All the fundamentals are in place, an international airport, infrastructure, and its located on the border with access to the great lakes shipping. IMHO that city would attract hundreds of billions in international revenue and would explode economically.
