Introduction by Dennis Conrad, President and Chief Strategist, Raving Consulting Company
What are douchebageries anyway? How will casinos in Florida and Massachusetts affect the rest of the country? What can we learn from the major growth and fall of Sin City?
One of the most talented and intelligent gaming writers I know, David McKee, hits upon all this and so much more in his recent article, “After the fall – What future — if any — does the Strip have?,” just published in Las Vegas CityLife. It is well worth the read to get a grand perspective of what’s happening in our global gaming community.
David begins his article with: “In 1995, the cover of Life magazine famously posed the question, ‘Las Vegas: Is the Boom Overextended?’ Sin City got 50 years of good laughs out of that. ‘We think 96 percent or 97 percent occupancy is like scraping the bottom of the barrel,’ bragged Las Vegas Sands CEO Sheldon Adelson in late 2007. Nobody’s laughing anymore.” Click here to read the entire article. Thanks for a terrific and insightful read, David.
