Title: Testimony Before the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Small Business, 103rd Congress, 2nd Session, Sep. 21, 1994
Author(s): Kindt, John Warren
Subject(s): Casinos
Gambling
Abstract: From a business-economic perspective, the main issue involved in legalizing various forms of gambling is whether gambling activities constitute a valid strategy for economic development. While the dollars invested in various legalized gambling projects and the initial jobs created are evident, the industry has been criticized for inflating the positive economic impacts and trivializing or ignoring the negative impacts. The industry's tendency to focus on specialized factors provides a distorted view of the localized economic positives, while ignoring the strategic business-economic costs to different regions of the United States.
