You think of all the other big gambling names: Trump, who is always trying to avoid bankruptcy or Steve Wynn, They are pipsqueaks compared to Sheldon.
Sheldon had the vision of creating a convention center and bringing business, and he parlayed his money brilliantly, and his political connections. His Macao Casino employs 21,000 people, and is a way for the Chinese Government to get untaxed money, and it is bringing in so much money, along with the other casinos, that the Government of Macao can’t spend it as fast as it comes in, but you never hear Sheldon complaining about his 40% Tax Rate there either, because it’s making him money.
But like everybody else in the gambling business, he got rich because government made him rich. Government gave him a privilege, a license…and we need to remember that Government is instrumental in determining who gets rich and who is kept in poverty.”
I don’t even think that counts as an investment — that’s like a tip! At a certain point, you wonder, when are we going to see $100 million spent, because its worth quite a bit to have the President of the United States owe you a favor.”
