Sands To Build Eurovegas
Sands To Build Eurovegas

Listen
AIR DATE: September 12, 2012

Las Vegas Sands has announced a deal to spend $20 billion building a casino complex including six casinos, twelve hotels and three golf courses near Madrid.  The project has aroused an unusual coalition of opponents - left-wing activists and Catholic bishops - who say the complex will bring problem gambling and bankruptcies. So can Las Vegas Sands repeat its success in building mega-resorts in Macau and Singapore? Or could this be more like Eurodisney?

    COMMENTS:
    Spain will be bankrupt before this casino complex is ever built, and, in any case, the Euro is well on the way to being a worthless currency. Overall, a foolish investment.
