Joker and Harley Parallels
I saw that post about how Motorcity was a dying city and I always assumed that is was, just not very quickly. We get hints of people like the Cablers, who provide power, and Jacob's efforts to provide fresh produce, and I assume he's not the only one. I'd always assumed that a lot of the gaps Motorcity couldn't provide for itself was a thriving smuggling ring. What boggles me is how anything other than a barter system could thrive down there economy wise.
