THIS WEEK’S BUSINESS PRESS POLL QUESTION
Log on to the Las Vegas Business Press Web site and let us hear your opinion on this week’s question.

The announcement led local analysts and economic experts to begin recrunching their numbers to figure out how much longer it will be before Southern Nevada’s economy begins to recover from the housing market slump and economic downturn.
How much longer do you think the region’s recovery will take now because of the Echelon project’s delay?
