Macau to Limit Tables.

 

Macau to Limit Tables.

Read an interesting article in the Wall Street Journal today about the gaming industry in Macau. Under pressure to diversify their economy amidst the popularity of gaming, the regulators have restricted development of further casinos and tables “not to exceed 5500 tables.”  The goal with this action is to facilitate other sectors of the economy “including tourism.”

Macau is a world away from New Hampshire. But I do think the economies of both areas do bear some similarities. Both are smaller regions that are dependent on larger regions around them. Like it or loathe it the New Hampshire economy is now dependant on Massachusetts and a more limited extent the northeast including Canada.

More reasons why S.B. 489 needs to be passed into state law.
