UNLV’s Dr. Stephen Miller Talks Las Vegas Super Bowl Impact, Chance of Recession, More

Last month, the Super Bowl was held here in Las Vegas. The event had a significant economic impact on the Entertainment Capital of the World.

Here to speak about that, as well as the state of the U.S. economy, is University of Nevada, Las Vegas economics professor Stephen Miller. He is the Director of Research for the Center for Business and Economic Research at UNLV’s Lee Business School.

Dr. Miller was joined by CYInterview sponsor Rob Gill, for what was a compelling discussion.

Speaking about the Super Bowl’s impact on Las Vegas, Professor Miller shared this:

“It ranges from about $400 million to $1.1, $1.3 billion dollars in economic impact. So, one thing to keep in mind about the Super Bowl is that it was already a big event in Las Vegas.

So, it was like adding icing on top of the cake that was already there.”
