Business Ala Vegas Style

Sheldon Adelson, chairman of the Las Vegas Sand Corporation, and arguably one of the world’s richest, albeit sheldonadelsoncontroversial, people recently commented in Newsweek on the possibility of Las Vegas reinventing itself amid the intense current economic pressures: 

“Las Vegas is a city of entertainment, and that’s what it is.  Everyone wants to diversify.  Clinics are coming to Las Vegas, and a lot of people want to change it into a medical-research city.  God bless them,  I hope it happens.  But when we have a generic synonymity with entertainment, how can we say we’re an academic breeding ground for scientists?  Not in my lifetime, and not in my children’s lifetime.”
