The Young Turks: Is Las Vegas Dying?
There were many others, one of which was called Viva, a project that Station Casinos was going to build on the west side of the I-15. They bought the land, even bulldozed some properties. The project was impressive, and included arterial roads, and more. But it never got off the ground, and Station is currently in a world of hurt. That's just the tip of the iceberg.
As Cenk Uygur mentions in the video below, we've got unemployment over 14%, foreclosures in every neighborhood (be it a poor or rich neighborhood), and a lot of sour, glum faces. I don't believe as Cenk does, that Las Vegas is dying. But it is very ill, and has a hacking cough. Can somebody get me some water?
