Yes. The problem is... It is seem like many corporations often get turned off by gambling or high crime around. They are often build their headquarters in safer-non gambling environment areas. That would be difficult for Las Vegas to lure corporations to come to Las Vegas. Otherwise, Las Vegas usually have no problem to lure hotel giants, high end retailers, high end restaurants, high end shows, and huge events but that is helping balance Las Vegas economy as well.
