Sweden finished sixth in the poll, which measures wealth and prosperity, taking into account factors including health care, wealth, freedom and social capital.The UK was buoyed by strong results in the entrepreneurship (ranked fifth), governance (ranked ninth) and social capital categories. However, of the 110 countries covered by the survey, it ranks a staggering 101st on public confidence in financial institutions, 98th on optimism about job prospects and 93rd on expectations of future economic performance – the kind of ratings usually found in the world’s poorest countries.The Antipodean nations both ranked highly, with Australia in fourth place and New Zealand fifth. Zimbabwe finished bottom of the poll, with Pakistan in penultimate place after a year dominated by terrorist attacks and natural disasters.The US clung to a top ten placing despite ranking poorly in the economy and safety categories. However, the poll seems to favour small countries, with the US the only superpower to make the top 10.Former Labour business secretary Peter Mandelson defended Labour’s legacy, saying the data was collected at the onset of the financial crisis and was disproportionately gloomy.

AGA hails commercial casino as ‘revenue generator’ in US

The revelation came in the 2018 ‘State of the States: The AGA Survey of the Commercial Casino Industry’, the organisation’s flagship publication that analyses the commercial casino market across 24 states. Commercial gaming generated a collective $40.28bn (£31.18bn/€34.71bn) in revenue during 2017, with states taking in a total of $9.23bn in revenue from commercial gaming taxes alone. In addition, 20 commercial casino states experienced revenue increases in 2017, which the AGA said reflects “strong macroeconomic trends and sustained job growth in most parts of the country”. The AGA estimates that the overall US casino industry is worth around $261bn and employs approximately 1.8 million people nationwide. Stacy Papadopoulos, interim chief executive of the AGA, said: “This year’s report demonstrates the commercial gaming industry’s role as a job creator and revenue generator in states across the country, and we’re proud of the industry’s steady growth over the past few years.” Casino gaming could be set for a further boost with more punters expected to visit gambling facilities to place sports bets, after the Supreme Court ruled to overturn PASPA earlier this year. Since the decision, a number of states have moved to regulate sports betting, with consumers able to visit casinos and racetracks to place legal wagers. In response to the ruling, the AGA recently moved to update its code of conduct to also cover sports betting as part of an ongoing effort to “build a more cohesive dialogue on responsible gaming”.Image: Pixabay 22nd August 2018 | By contenteditor AGA hails commercial casino as ‘revenue generator’ in USlast_img read more
