introduced a new law that increasing casino access from 18 to 21 years old in order to avoid the potential impact of gambling (Glenn). Gambling is a very powerful weapon, a double-edged sword. If government use this sword, it can bring economic development and also reduce the social impacts. However, without the government’s intervention it can also go backwards and destroy the local economic by creating high unemployment rate and damaging to the vulnerable individuals and society.

In this researching essay, I have explored why government should use gambling to promote economic development by creating related jobs such as waiters and developing local economy by building more casinos, restaurants, and shopping malls. Also, government could set rules and regulations such as increasing age limit for access, or top limit for how much money per bet or you can lose per day. The government would use gambling as a tool to develop tourism and gambling industry to be a significant contributor to government coffers and return back to development local economic growth.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
