Looks like you don't know it yet:

Las Vegas Sands No Longer Pursuing Spain Development, Will Continue Aggressive Pursuit of Opportunities in Asia

Las Vegas Sands Corporation- Las Vegas Sands No Longer Pursuing Spain Development, Will Continue Aggressive Pursuit of Opportunities in Asia

More than 85% of Spaniards in several online polls say we don't want anything like EuroVegas in our own territory.
It would be well to amend the heading of this thread.

Not really that bothered to be honest, if they wanted to build it in Europe then Spain would have been a good option, but it's probably better off still in Asia, as the Chinese seem to enjot gambling more than most.

I hope they enjoy also being its societies ravaged by unbridled speculation...

Why wouldn't they want this? The country is extremely corrupt, the unemployment rate is 26.7%, it will bring money into the country. I dont like half of the stuff that gets built here in the states but all i notice about the building projects in the states is the creation of jobs.

Also is anyone else boycotting Wal-Mart here in Chicago i know many people that are because of Made in China.

I have already explained it several times in the last three days.
Most Spaniard people are not corrupt, but main politicians, so that's why people dislike huge gambling resorts so much, which can result in many harmful consequences for our society.

What about United States? Is it a corrupt country or not?

Las Vegas Sands Corp, which is owned by U.S. billionaire Sheldon Adelson, signed a settlement with the U.S. Justice Department on Monday, agreeing to pay $47.4 million in fines stemming from a money laundering investigation.
For business tycoon Sheldon Adelson it is the equivalent of salt in the wound.

After spending millions to try and thwart President Barack Obama’s reelection in 2012, Adelson’s Las Vegas casino empire agreed this week to pay the U.S. government $47.4 million in fines to avoid criminal charges stemming from a money laundering investigation.

Take for granted that politicians from Nevada or Macao are much more corrupt than Spaniards ones, because they have made possible these stupid megalomaniac resorts of pathological gambling and large-scale crime.
All we wanna do is change the production model to a technologically advanced industry, as Germany or The Netherlands have.

Still on the bright side, there are some opportunities for Dwarfs at London's Hippodrome Casino, and any vertically challenged Spaniards can apply under EU rules.

Plus there could be a new Casino opening in Preston, so every cloud as they say.......

More silliness. LV crime is down substantially over the last ten years. And that is without allowing for its visitor population which inflates its crime rate. Las Vegas finishes about 1/3 of the way from the bottom of American Cities bigger than 100K. If an allowance is made for the visitor population it is close to average.
