THE USE OF GAMBLING FOR INFRASTRUCTURE FINANCING

As fiscal pressures continue, government at all levels are searching for new ways to fund needed infrastructure improvements. Expanding the revenues from various forms of gambling is an option that has been frequently considered. Only rarely, however, are proposals supported by a comprehensive analysis. This paper reviews the principal costs and benefits that are relevant in evaluations of gambling expansion proposals. Recommendations for researchers and policymakers are presented and discussed.
