State Lottery

Marshall, Eliot
June 1978
New Republic;6/24/78, Vol. 178 Issue 25, p20
The article presents an overview of the gambling industry in the U.S. There are now 15 states in the country that run lotteries but the federal government discourages the business. The jurisdiction of the Federal Trade Commission is limited to private enterprises so it cannot intervene in the lottery business in various states. In order to control gambling it should be made a state-controlled monopoly.
