Academic Pens Anti-Web Gaming Op-Ed For Roll Call
Piece Comes After Argument Put Forth By Former Nevada Regulator
John Warren Kindt, an academic and a senior editor and contributing author to the United States International Gaming Report, recently penned a piece for Roll Call, entitled “Internet Gambling Will Cripple World’s Economic, Financial Systems”.
In the op-ed, he makes arguments which go against the recent piece by former Nevada Gaming Control Board Chairman Mark Lipparelli. Kindt even cites Lipparelli.
In a nutshell, Kindt thinks the business is bad for the economy, while Lipparelli believes it to be a good area for growth. The topic of gambling as a social evil was invoked.
The issue is extremely complex, as people on both sides have argued for years.
After a federal online poker bill didn’t materialize late last year on Capitol Hill, some states are looking at potentially authorizing the activity. The battle of ideas continues on.
