Professor I. Nelson Rose quoted in Washington Post on future on sports betting

The Washington Post, March 3, 2015


The history of gambling in the United States is not an inexorable march from outlawed vice to accepted leisure activity, but rather a recurring pattern: legalization, scandal, then prohibition. Legal bans last decades, until elected officials are desperate for cash, then the cycle repeats.

Rose, the American gambling legal expert, predicts the ban will fall eventually but thinks history will repeat itself. A national scandal will cause outrage. Americans will call for prohibition again.
