AbstractThe Alberta Gaming Research Institute commissioned this literature review of the economics of gambling and government and industry gambling policy and practice. The review is designed to accomplish the following objectives: 1. To identify scholarly articles in academic journals, texts, and conference proceedings pertaining to (a) the economics of gambling, and (b) public and private sector gambling policy and practice. 2. To compile an electronic database to store the citations and, where available, the annotations of the identified references. 3. To provide a summary report that discusses the identified literature and highlights the contributions of Albertans to this field of endeavor. 4. To begin the process of generating interest and building capacity to conduct gambling-related research within the Alberta Gaming Research Institute. To complement this review of the scholarly literature, Dr. Peter Bowal and his University of Calgary colleague’s conducted a separate review and analysis of legal and government documents in the gambling policy domain. The results of the Bowal review are contained in a separate report.
