Gambling and the public interest

Abstract

Discusses regulatory, tax and other public-policy issues related to gambling, including whether the gaming industry should be compelled to finance treatment for problem gamblers. Argues against the idea that a moral case can be made for banning gambling in a society committed to liberal democratic values, but sees a role for furthering public policy goals and mitigating the ill effects of gambling on communities as well as on gamblers themselves.
