Does It Benefit Society?Streaming Video - 2005
Some states and Native American tribes rely on legalized gambling as an essential source of income. But has this income really benefited those it was supposed to help? This program explores the question by weighing the financial benefits derived by host communities against the casino's detrimental effects on local business. Are casinos investing in communities, as suggested by supporters, or diverting the money elsewhere? Living conditions among those in communities with casinos are compared with other similar communities. Experts include a casino manager, a professor of economics, and an anti-gambling activist.
