Vegas Ranked Fifth Worst Economy in the WORLD

An international study says Las Vegas has one of the worst economies in the world, and prospects for a rapid recovery appear dim.

The Brookings Institution and London School of Economics study ranked Las Vegas fifth from the bottom in a ranking of 150 metropolitan areas, citing a limited economy that relies heavily on tourism and construction.

Las Vegas fared better than only Dublin; Dubai, United Arab Emirates; Barcelona, Spain; and Thessaloniki, Greece. The rankings weigh jobs, job growth and income.
