PROBLEM GAMBLING (SEMINAR)

This is extremely difficult. Doing that may also reduce the benefits from participating in gambling. This means a region may strongly lobby for a new facility β€” say a casinoβ€” because it will benefit say from employment generation and such like to the detriment of other regions. Designing an effective framework β€” one that minimises the tradeoffs and minimises the damage β€” is a major policy challenge. A survey of the population found that 1. Implicit in the report is that although there is probably insufficient data to carry out a full social evaluation of the costs and benefits, of gambling, further quantitative progress could be made. It is unlikely that their loss of welfare has been taken into account when the gambler was deciding to thinking gamble although there may be individuals who limit their gambling because it affects associates. This is not because economists are personally amoral, but rather the profession does not try to impose a morality on the public. The method compares those who are involved in gambling with those who are not. However it is possible that some other modes have higher unit detriment but fewer people involved. This approach avoids comparing the benefit the person who gains from the transferred resources perhaps after a number of transactions with the loss the person who involuntarily loses the resource suffers. There is some evidence that electronic gaming machines are the single largest source of net social detriment from gambling. While they have not been measured, the indications are that those resource costs are not large once any benefit is offset. After controlling for a wide range of socioeconomic variables β€” such as age, gender, marital status, employment, education and income the study β€” the study found that those who gamble heavily report lower personal well-being that those who do not. Costs of crime. This is an extremely difficult task; interventions are likely to limit the benefits to some rational decision-makers, and will still leave some irrational decision-makers exposed to opportunities to gambling. Thus while a common form of gambling crime is embezzlement, it is better dealt with by measures that deal with embezzlement generally. However, some transactions are not socially beneficial β€” as when someone else is required to bear costs which were not taken into account when the individual considered her of his consumption decision. While the tangible impact of gambling on resource usage seems small, gambling may also impact β€” positively and negatively β€” on the welfare of many people including those associated with gamblers. In essence it is these net costs which are not taken into account when the gambler or whoever makes the decision to gamble. The report notes there is little policy rationality in gaming taxation. Excise duties on alcohol are the residual policy intervention when all effective targeted interventions have been put in place. Part of the reason that much alcohol consumption is socially beneficial is because the regulatory framework is reasonably effective. However the survey also asked respondents whether people considered there would have been a change in their well-being had they not been gambling in the last 12 months. High participation gamblers were more likely to be involved in illegal activities. Appendix I is a general account about how economists think about social benefits and costs set around the standard social cost evaluation approach. This also applies for the nation as a whole if the gambling facility attracts tourists from overseas or discourages nationals from going overseas to gamble. Voluntary transactions are therefore not of a great public policy interest. Optimal design requires the measurements of costs and benefits under different assumptions. In the following paragraphs we assume that the strong gambling to poorer well-being causal path explains much of the correlation. A major difference between alcohol and gambling regulation is that there seem greater differences in potential social detriment among the various modes of gambling than there is for types of alcohol modes where the amount of absolute alcohol is treated as the primary trigger for detriment irrespective of the form in which it is drunk. We take this to mean that gambling improves their quality of life of many people, as we might expect given they choose to pursue the activity. Even so there is a tradeoff. A second group who may be worse off are associates of heavy gamblers. Social and benefits costs are not only resource costs. There is methodological problem here. As a result the community attempts to regulate the consumption of alcohol in order to minimise the social costs of alcohol consumption, without reducing the benefits from the consumption. Externalities include crime. It is not obvious that the specific lessons of alcohol regulation are always useful for gambling regulation, but there may be some general lessons to be learned from it. It has a public policy objective of harm minimisation. This does not rule out there is still the reverse path, but it seems likely that it is not as strong. Insofar as people choses to participate in gambling activities and have a higher standard of well-being as a result, then gambling activities represent a social benefit. However the gains to one region are a loss to another. Many people have strong moral views on the activity of gambling. But such a claim ignores that if there was no gambling, individuals would spend their income on other activities which would also generate employment. Typically reducing the social damage from alcohol reduces some social benefits because it limits some voluntary transactions which are not socially damaging. We will return to the paradox that many individuals voluntarily engaging in gambling appear to be less well-off as a result, and here note that this result seems to suggest that there is a strong causal path from heavy gambling to the lowering of well-being. This arises because the method does not treat resources which are transferred as a social cost. The most substantial net costs may be the regulatory costs which are not charged to the gambling providers or passed onto the gamblers. However precise quantities are not reported here, just the general tenor of the research findings. A second counterfactual scenario considered those people who had associates usually family and friends who were gambling. The policy area which has most struggled with this sort of tradeoff is the regulation of alcohol. Even so, crime is a social issue, and it threatens the integrity of the property rights which underpin a market economy. All these were statistical very strong differences relative to those less involved in gambling. However, sometimes it is claimed that the extra industry activity including employment is also a benefit. The only life dimensions where there was not a strong effect were work performance and care-giving to the elderly. Rather it draws out the policy implications of the known costs and benefits of gambling, thereby summarising the main report, which consists of two parts. While gambling is associated with crime in this way, it is not obvious that the regulation of gambling can or should be adapted to minimise such crime. But money transfers from the gambling criminal to someone else are not treated as a social cost. However there are gamblers who, on reflection, think they would be better off were they not to gamble. According to a survey of those involved in illegal activities, about a quarter said they would not have committed a crime had they not been gambling. Thus the net gains in resource terms from introducing gambling activities are small and may be largely ignored. A first step is to consider the costs and benefits. This amounts to about criminals a year. Not all transactions in an economy meet these conditions. This includes housing and lotteries as well as more complicated forms of gambling. Thus the method does not discriminate between those whose personal well-being is reduced by going gambling and those of a melancholic disposition who choose to go gambling as a result. A third counterfactual scenario was the assumption that there were no electronic gaming machines, and there was no displacement of gambling activity that is, people gave up gambling and did not move to other modes such as casinos and the TAB.{/INSERTKEYS}{/PARAGRAPH} Note that the economic analysis does not distinguish between the mode of gambling. The evidence is that a considerable number of people are in this category. The introduction of a gambling facility may be beneficial to a region if it encourages gambling and possibly other activity in the region by diverting the expenditure from other regions as when outsiders visit the region to participate in gambling or locals remain rather than go outside in order to participate. Economists recognise that some regulatory frameworks are more efficient than others, so that while tradeoffs cannot be avoided, they can be minimised. Because, as we shall see, some gambling is social damaging, there is seen to be a need to regulate it. This section now reports the results of a survey in which people were asked about their personal well-being on a number of dimensions. It is thought that these resource externalities are not large in the case of gambling, especially if the gaming duties are seen as a contribution to the resource costs of its regulation. The econometric evidence concludes that there can be a major detrimental impact on the lives of those associated with heavy gambling, a conclusion supported by the rest of the survey and by other studies. A key element of the economists approach is that if individuals voluntarily choses to participate in an activity there is an increase in social benefit , providing they act rationally, and the prices they face reflect the true social cost of the resources they use. The direct intangible benefits from gambling offset the social costs which are taken into account during the consumption decision. In terms of the preceding analysis, most cases of alcohol consumption are beneficial or any external costs β€” to be explained below β€” are small. In such cases the economic analysis considers that there has been a net gain in welfare. Among them are economists who, like the population, have a wide variety of personal views. The same applies to gambling. On a wider assessment of the social impact of gambling, there in no question that insofar as gambling generates crime that is a downside of gambling. It seems likely that the main intangible effect is on the quality of life of gamblers and their associates. Others may want to distinguish between housie or betting on horses, say, from playing at the casino or poker machines. Thus, when two adequately informed carry out a voluntary exchange between them which does not affect others, an economist observes that each considers themselves better off otherwise the exchange would not have been voluntary and so each experiences an increase in personal welfare. The tangible resource social costs of gambling are those resources which are utilised relative to some counterfactual scenario β€” perhaps no gambling which are not offset by some benefit. However the professional economics account of gambling does not take such views into account. This provides a context for the main report which considers the benefits and costs of gambling. First, suppose there was no gambling i. In some cases the social cost is very high β€” as when a drunk driver causes road deaths. The evidence is that many people would have lower personal welfare if they had not the opportunity to gamble. Those who were more heavily involved in gambling were more likely to think their well-being would have been improved along the following dimensions: physical health, mental well-being, relationships with families and friends, quality of life, overall satisfaction of life, financial situation, housing situation, material standard of living, study performance and care giving of their children. It may be particularly valuable in identifying the more problematic modes of gambling. It is accepted that there is a need to prevent parts of the gambling industry being taken over by criminal elements and this is best dealt with by direct industry regulation. {PARAGRAPH}{INSERTKEYS}The following is not the usual executive summary. There appears to be more gamblers gainers that there are losers. In such cases the social costs of the used resources are offset by the benefit that the decision-maker obtains from the consumption. According to the econometric investigation there would be a reduction in satisfaction of life if there was no gambling.
