Casinos and Collateral Political Damage

Intriguing counterfactuals for your Sunday cogitation. On a related topic, don't miss the amusing front-page story about Steve Wynn in today's Globe. Wynn promises an endless fount of hilarious quotes as long as he's building a casino here. Today's gem, about when Wynn's project won the Boston license:
When he finally won, “I turned to my wife, [Andrea,] and I said, ‘Oooh, Mohegan Sun, tough day.’ ”
That said, I respect Wynn's view on the casino ballot question. He's consistently welcomed it, and he did so again in today's article.
[H]e said he is glad the question is on the ballot. “If there is a vocal group that is antigaming, that has to affect regulators and everybody else, whether they admit it or are aware of it or not,” he said. “It colors our presence. The idea that the citizens of Massachusetts are actually going to speak on the subject makes life simpler.”
