Nevadans can accept status quo, or we can learn, innovate, change

Dec. 27, 2009
We can’t start 2010 soon enough. It’s the year, we’re told, when we can begin to pull ourselves up, dust ourselves off and begin our recovery from a terrible few years that brought us to our knees.

Sweet charity: How giving back is helping business' bottom line
Monday, July 11, 2011
Cover Story: Hey, big spenders: Corporate giving in Las Vegas got hit particularly hard in the Great Recession. But giving back is actually helping Las Vegas businesses.
Darcy Neighbors knows first hand that philanthropy is not only good for the soul, but great for the bottom line. In business, giving back is a selfish act—and that’s OK. All credible studies show that businesses that actively donate to charitable causes increase their brand awareness, boost employee morale and fatten their balance sheets.
Where I Stand: Today, a forum for visionaries
Sunday, December 27, 2009
2020 Vision:
Visionaries are only as good as the people who pay attention to them. As we look to 2010 — that in itself is a mouthful to a fellow who, as a very young man, used to wonder what kind of spaceships we would use to take us to the moon in the 21st century — it is helpful to pay attention to what our community leaders think will happen in the next 10 years.
To predict 2020, hindsight from 2010
Sunday, December 27, 2009
2020 Vision:
It is hard to imagine in these heady days as we enter the third decade of the 21st century how grim conditions in Las Vegas were just a decade ago. After a half-century boom, the region found itself in its biggest bust. Sure Las Vegas had seen bad times before, but this downturn seemed to challenge its whole business model.
Still the destination resort of the world
Sunday, December 27, 2009
2020 Vision:
I think that Nevada is going to remain — Las Vegas is going to remain — the destination resort of the world. There will be new transportation measures to get people to Las Vegas — by then we’ll have a high-speed train between Las Vegas and Southern California.
State of water depends on the Colorado River
State of water depends on the Colorado River
Sunday, December 27, 2009
2020 Vision:
In the coming decade our primary water source, the Colorado River, will have more years with less water than years with more water. Still, I’m optimistic that Las Vegas will be ready for whatever nature throws our way. If the drought gets very severe in the Colorado River Basin, water should become a national topic, and we’ll be talking about retooling the nation’s water supply as a whole.
Bankruptcy attorney: Hoping for recovery, but recession's lessons will be forgotten
Sunday, December 27, 2009
2020 Vision:
We’re definitely going to see more bankruptcies in the next year or two and then it will taper off. I don’t think we have finished the bad news when it comes to commercial property. You’re going to have a lot fewer people standing at the end of this cycle.

2020 Vision:
One of downtown’s highlights will be the Smith Center. History tells us how important world-class facilities like these have on the culture of the city’s residents. So it’s not just going to be a fabulous building, it’s going to change lives. Culture and the arts change lives. What’s happening here will forever change our children.

2020 Vision:
Futurists are always the first to tell you anything can happen. But the likelihood of change generally follows one of three paths. The first track is the status quo. The second potential track is downward. The third future option is the track I support — the path upward.

2020 Vision:
I bet three-quarters of a billion dollars that things will be good on the Las Vegas Strip by 2020, so I hope I’m right. I figure the Strip is going to continue to be the place in Las Vegas, and there’s only one Las Vegas so people from around the world will continue to come here.
