    Eventually, I wouldn't be surprised if (MPEL) challenges (MGM), (LVS), and (WYNN) as the largest casino in the world.

    So, who's right? The talking heads on CNBC endlessly speculating about a "Chinese slowdown, or the actual Chinese consumers who continue to show up in Macau in increasingly greater numbers?

    Neither Chinese government data or CNBC are trustworthy. The most reliable source is company data and satellite data.
