Nevada's Economic Outlook
Nevada's Economic Outlook

Listen
AIR DATE: December 17, 2013

The economy has been recovering - slowly. It certainly has not been performing to capacity. Southern Nevada has more visitors than ever - but it's not creating the boom that we had a decade ago. So, says Stephen Brown, we need to re-think our commitment to tourism. The decline of the construction boom also offers new opportunities because that industry is not crowding out other sectors. And when the economy shrugs off its lethargic growth, there will be plenty of room for the tourism industry to prosper again. So why is growth so slow and what are the big opportunities for the Las Vegas economy?
