9780029124833: The Luck Business: The Devastating Consequences and Broken Promises of America's Gambling Explosion

This work documents how the growth of lotteries, casino and riverboats has often led to dramatic increases in state revenues - and also unexpected economic and social problems. It shows how, as state governments have gone from regulating to promoting gambling ventures, they have increasingly neglected productive business enterprises. As more and more Americans risk their savings, they experience more bankruptcy, domestic violence and gambling addictions.
