Title: The Economic Impacts of Legalized Gambling Activities
Author(s): Kindt, John Warren
Subject(s): Gambling Economics
Abstract: The fundamental question regarding legalized gambling activities is whether gambling activities help or hinder the economy. Gambling affects local, state, interstate, and national economies. This Article extrapolates downward from national and interstate economic factors to the state economies and demonstrates how the strategic elements of gambling activities impact state and local economies. Gambling organizations traditionally focus their attention on local economies or specialized factors in those local economies or both. This narrow focus usually gives a distorted view of selected positives that the gambling activities allegedly bring to the local community.
