ABSTRACT
The article focuses on McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas, Nevada. The decision of the Clark County Aviation Department, which operates the facility, to continue with a planned expansion of the airport, including construction of a new terminal, is examined. The plan is considered ambitious because the global financial crisis and recession has led to a severe drop in the amount of passenger traffic at the airport from 2007-2010.
