The Economics of Casino Gambling is a comprehensive discussion of the social and economic costs and benefits of legalized gambling.

A bold challenge to accepted ideas about the need for regulation of world financial markets In a controversial new book sure to spark debate throughout the world financial community, British financial journalist and investment expert Daniel Ben-Ami makes a strong case against the current trend toward increased government regulation of the international money markets.

Daniel Ben-Ami However, this vision of the global financial casino is incorrect

But this book is perhaps most useful as a starting point for debate, which it will certainly generate in the mind of any informed reader. While you might quibble with Ben-Ami’s conclusions - as we do with his assertion that the threat of the 1990s financial crises was overblown - you will not be bored. However, this vision of the global financial casino is incorrect. Today’s financial markets are characterized by a fear of risk, not by investors putting money into the market without any concern for danger.

Whether they agree with Ben-Ami or not, his book will give them much food for thought. Daniel Ben-Ami helps the reader to better understand the role of the financial markets.

A bold challenge to accepted ideas about the need for regulation of world financial markets In a controversial new book sure to spark debate throughout the world financial community, British financial journalist and investment expert Daniel Ben-Ami makes a strong case against the current trend toward increased government regulation of the international money markets. In stark contrast to the accepted wisdom, promulgated by the likes of Soros and Krugman, Ben-Ami avers that the real problem currently threatening global finance is not wanton risk-taking, but excessive risk aversion. Rather than reduce the likelihood of financial crises, he believes that greater intervention will bring greater problems including panic waves that could crush the economies of entire regions in a matter of hours. Writing in a lively style, devoid of mathematics, and using many allusions to current affairs, pop culture, and business publishing to illustrate his arguments, Ben-Ami makes this book an enjoyable, highly accessible read.
