The Oxford Handbook of the Economics of Gambling

Edited by Leighton Vaughan Williams () and Donald Siegel ()

in OUP Catalogue from Oxford University Press

Abstract: There is growing interest among academics and policymakers in the economics of gambling, which has been stimulated by major regulatory and tax changes in the U.S., U.K. Continental Europe, Asia, Australia and elsewhere. Unfortunately, there is no comprehensive source of path-breaking research on this topic. To fill this gap, we commissioned chapters from leading economists on all aspects of gambling research. Topics covered include the optimal taxation structure for various forms of gambling, factors influencing the demand and supply of gambling services, forecasting of gambling trends, regulation of gambling, the efficiency of racetrack and sports betting markets, gambling prevalence and behavior, modeling the demand for gambling services, the economic impact of gambling, substitution and complementarities among different types of gambling activity, and the relationship between gambling and other sectors of the economy. These are all important issues, with significant global implications. Specifically, we divide the Handbook into sections on casinos, sports betting, horserace betting, betting strategy, motivation, behavior and decision-making in betting markets, prediction markets and political betting, and lotteries and gambling machines Available in OSO: http://www.oxfordhandbooks.com/oso/public/content/oho_economics/9780199797912/toc.html Contributors to this volume - Josemari Aizpurua is Professor in the Department of Economics at the Public University of Navarre in Spain.Gary Anders is an Emeritus Professor of Economics in the W.P.
