Competition rules in Mesquite scene

January 2009
Las Vegas Business Press (10712186);1/5/2009, Vol. 26 Issue 1, pP24
The author reflects on competition or free enterprise in the Mesquite area. He believes that despite the temporary closing of the Oasis casino, night clubs and restaurants, all is not doom and gloom in Mesquite because of its competitive forces. An overview of Black Gaming, who closed the Oasis casino, restaurants and clubs in December, and its lone competition, Eureka, is offered. The author suggests to see more of free enterprise in the face of weaker economy and collapsing financial markets.
