The Glenn Show — Glenn Loury and David Blankenhorn

Glenn Loury , Bloggingheads.tv, 10/7/2013

On The Glenn Show, David explains his fierce opposition to authorizing gambling casinos in New York State. Playing devil's advocate, Glenn raises the libertarian argument – why not leave people alone to make their own choices? David argues that the seductive allure of slot machines exploits vulnerable people, serving as a hidden tax on the poor. He mentions the Orwellian quality of the "gamble speak" employed by the casino industry. Glenn, still pushing back, asks what's wrong with "selling hope." Finally, David lays out the odds of New York's gambling ballot initiative passing on election day.
