Gambling government: the economic and social impacts
In this book Walker looks at the evidence we have about how gambling is reshaping state economies and putting pressure on welfare services. He highlights the trade-offs which governments are engaged in when they promote gambling as a means of reviving cities and funding services. Finally Walker outlines a program for reforms to the way we deal with the impact of gambling.
