The downturn of the economy that started in late 2007 had significant impacts across many different markets and industries. At the peak of the recession, the gaming and real estate markets were disproportionately impacted and stalled many development projects in Las Vegas. Being the capital of gaming, Las Vegas suffered a major blow to the heart of its key industry and deterred many developers to abandon their projects in order to stay afloat.
Nevada’s economy has been making a steady recovery and signaling the return of a viable marketplace. In addition, Nevada, among a handful of other states, has been experiencing a rapid growth in its economy due to efforts put in place by the state and federal government. Over the past few years, Nevada has been focusing on encouraging investments and attracting businesses to the state with lucrative tax breaks and the positive outlook of a sustainable economy.
