Man's instinct to gamble is at least as old as government's need for funds. So it should come as no surprise that government has learned to regard gambling as a source of revenue, whether through direct taxation or through government-run gambling establishments. In the US recently, changing moral attitudes towards gambling as well as increasingly desperate local financing needs, have produced a surge of interest in legalized gambling. Added to these factors has been the belief that legalizing gambling is one way to fight organized crime.
