Las Vegas Economy, Crippled by Coronavirus, Plays Key Role in Presidential Race

LAS VEGAS—Many hotel rooms on the Strip are empty, thousands of hospitality workers have been laid off, and whether President Trump or Democratic nominee Joe Biden wins Nevada’s six electoral votes could hinge on which party voters blame for the battered economy.

One in three people in Las Vegas was unemployed in April after casinos shut down, pummeling the broader hospitality industry, the state’s biggest employer. In August, the unemployment rate was the highest among the largest U.S. cities at 15.5%, even though casinos began to reopen in early June.

Clark County, where Las Vegas is located, is home to 70% of the state’s active registered voters, and both presidential candidates are campaigning here. Nevada narrowly backed Democrat Hillary Clinton in 2016, and the state could make the difference in a close election.

Interviews here found some locals aim their frustrations over the economic turmoil at Gov. Steve Sisolak, a

Meghann Showers

As the number of digital devices we use has risen, the blurring of boundaries between our work and personal lives have inevitably blurred, with the mass adoption of remote working during the COVID-19 pandemic shattering any divide entirely.

Modi’s Key Reforms Stall as Pandemic Upends India’s Economy

Meghann Showers

(Bloomberg) — India’s delay in appointing a new central bank committee to decide interest rates is just the latest of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s key economic reforms that are failing to gain traction during the nation’s worst crisis in decades.

Three of his major policies — the goods and services tax, a bankruptcy and insolvency law and the Monetary Policy Committee — have been mired in problems since the Covid-19 outbreak upended economic activity.

The bankruptcy law has been suspended, frustrating the loan recovery efforts of lenders already saddled with one of the world’s worst bad-loan problem. And on top of that, the government didn’t appoint members to the central bank’s MPC in time for its scheduled policy decision last week, delaying
