One of Donald Trump’s former Atlantic City casinos will be blown up next month, and for the right amount of money, you could be the one to press the button that brings it down.
The demolition of the former Trump Plaza casino will become a fundraiser to benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Atlantic City that the mayor hopes will raise in excess of $1m.
Fun in the sense that it is fun. Tee hee and all that.
Silly in the sense that this is a monopoly owned by the city. It is, in the economic sense, something akin to a land rent in fact – like spectrum and all that. Therefore the revenue should go to the city coffers. Because as Henry George told us, land rents are how we should finance government.
