It is far from a phenomenon that Americans play. Activity is decades more than the constitution. There came a time that it was the primary source of government funds. If we could sum up our incomes alone from the game, the golden bullets and the silver plates of this national film treasure would fade in comparison. Approximately, the gross annual income of the gaming account more than $ 34 billion. But still playing offsets, he also lacerates, especially those who have to do with morality and psychology. We hear all kinds of opinion about the game. To some it’s fun, because others are useless, dull, harmful, and financially damaging. Nevertheless, let’s discount the morals first and the right look at the game with the help of an objective objective of an economist. So, what are the good, the bad, and the ugly sides of the game anyway:
The good sides
visit any state with several casino establishments and you would immediately notice that starvation is not a question there. Food and accommodations are too cheap. There is no poverty in the community. The state accumulates wealth through entertainment. Putting up a casino in a city is like putting a TV on your room. Yes, he is wasting your time. Like TV, your entertainment converts into electricity bills later. The game also converts into bills later, but it also earns you while as well. He raises income. He builds schools, roads, churches and hospitals. It creates jobs, increases the security strength of the state, and attracts tourists.
The bad sides
playing drains your energy. It is each distraction at a level that can potentially make a majority a fanatic. A visit to the casino often keeps us from our commitments and commitments. Besides entertainment, it has nothing more. For players, it consumes without giving anything back. And that’s quite true in terms of casino establishments where they cannibalize small businesses around them. And it is also true that the game provides schools and jobs and so on; but by doing so, it consumes enormous natural resources.
The ugly side
many attribute the increased crime, alcoholism, child abuse, broken families, bankruptcies, and even the boom killing of our gambling era. But frankly, economists do not care much. The real question to them is the net effect? Until there is a very solid evidence that playing the social causes of social adversity of economists recoils and let the stand center stage of moralists. Until economists are concerned, playing does not create social night, it is only a transfer of wealth to one person to another. There is, however, no substantial evidence that it hurts one person to another. Like him or not, that’s what economists and state officials want as evidence if you want proof against gambling.
