2011 Wrap-Up in the LVBP

In this week’s Las Vegas Business Press, I look back at 2011, trying to see what the big lessons are:

Closing the book on 2011 in the Las Vegas casino scene, one word comes to mind: paradox. There wasnt a clear trend leading us either into a more prosperous future or into the muck of even worse economic malaise. Instead, we got a little bit of everything, which means that the last page of this story hasnt been written yet.

via Las Vegas Business Press :: David G. Schwartz : In 11, lots of noise, little certainty for casinos.

This is probably the last look back at 2011 I’ll do–from here on out, it’s looking ahead–at least until next December/January.
