Wynn's rep creates great expectations

Vegas magnate Steve Wynn's Bay State casino coup promises to make metro Boston the new gambling mecca of the East Coast, as his $1.6 billion Everett resort - which won state Gaming Commission approval yesterday - will mark his much-anticipated return to a region he took by storm three decades ago before putting his indelible imprint on the Vegas strip. "It's a big deal, because he's shown in every market he's gone into, he's put in a very high-amenity facility, and in most cases led the market," said David Schwartz of the Center for Gaming Research at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

Report: Wealth gap stunts Nevada tax revenue growth

The amount of money Nevada gets from taxes is growing at a much slower pace than it did decades ago, a statistic that a new report attributes in part to the widening gap between the incomes of the top 1 percent of earners and everyone else. A report released Monday by Standard & Poor's finds that stagnant wages among the masses have dampened consumer spending, which in turn affects state revenue - most noticeably for states like Nevada that depend largely on sales taxes.
