This class will combine two previous OLLI at UNLV classes into two 6-week blocks. Jeff Moskow will teach Current Business Topics first, followed by Doug Verb's Current Sports Business Topics. Current Business Topics looks at current news items and evaluates the impact they are likely to have on the economy and stock market. With the stock market fluctuating wildly and a great deal of political uncertainty, how does one make informed investment decisions in today's environment? Lively class discussion is encouraged. Current Sports Business Topics follows developments in professional sports. Las Vegas now has four professional sports franchises, plus minor league baseball and UNLV's NCAA Division 1 squads. We now have many more games, a new arena, two stadiums, over 250 pro athletes, coaches, and staffers, plus additional media, hype, tax revenue, and exposure for our city. Examine the business framework behind our city's teams, and look at the inner workings. We will also discuss the big stories on the national sports business scene.
