Of Revenues and Morality: The Debate Over State Lotteries


Author(s):
Abstract:
Supporters and critics of state lotteries agree on one thing: lotteries are politically attractive. Although no southern state has yet to do so, between 1964 and 1984, twenty-one states adopted lotteries. Clotfelter discusses the defeated of a proposed state lottery in North Carolina, the arguments for and against them, and how a lottery might be implemented if adopted in North Carolina.
