LIEWEKE: "Everyone tells me, 'Well, Sacramento's economy has struggled.' Go to Germany. Go to Europe and look at the economy over there and the struggles they've had.' And in Berlin, we own 50 acres of land in and around the O2 arena there and almost all of the land there has been sold and it is being developed as we speak."
