ABSTRACT
The article features Las Vegas, Nevada as a gambling empire that was built on the bank accounts of losing gamblers. Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman, when asked by a Shanghai reporter about recession and competition from the gambling enclave of Macau, simply belittled the observation saying that when it comes to gambling, Las Vegas is the real thing. Mayor Goodman who admits being a degenerate gambler added that "there is nothing wrong with being addicted to gambling" as it is a good thing.
