March 2009
Las Vegas Business Press (10712186);3/2/2009, Vol. 26 Issue 9, pP24
The author comments on U.S. President Barack Obama's criticism of business travels to Las Vegas, Nevada. Wells Fargo and Goldman Sachs both canceled their planned event in the state after they were criticized by Obama. However, Goldman paid a $600,000 cancellation fee and booked a more expensive seminar in San Francisco. The author says Obama's criticism affects the economy which he is trying to save with federal money. The author also argued that federal money should not preclude any company from doing business as normal.
