The Future of Infrastructure in Las Vegas

The freeways are being widened and McCarran has a new terminal but does that cover Las Vegas infrastructure needs? Could new roads and railroads really strengthen the economy in Southern Nevada? And what else will diversify the kind of business that is carried on in Nevada?

The Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce, which is usually opposed to new government spending, is a convert to the idea that we need to re-think the infrastructure needs of Las Vegas. Who converted the members? Urban Studies Professor and Director of Brookings Mountain West Robert Lang. He joins us to discuss the long-term development of the economy in Southern Nevada.
