Fascinating account of Steve Wynn's struggle to acquire a piece of land in Atlantic City and develop a tunnel towards it. With strong opposition from Donald Trump resulting in a formidable (legal) battle.
It's a bit disheartening to learn how US politicians and government officials were dealing with this situation. Trying to earn their own money and working primarily on their own interests instead of doing what's good for the community. Sleazy legal practices, lobby groups and shady politicians make for a world that's fairly off-putting. The amount of corruption seemingly present in parts of American society is disturbing to say the least.
I would have liked more lessons from companies such as Wynn, MGM and Trump and maybe some more insight into the minds of Steve Wynn and Donald Trump but this was a captivating story nonetheless.
