The casinos are projected to siphon an additional $1 billion dollars out of the Massachusetts economy every year. This isn’t money that is currently being gambled by residents. It’s money that residents are currently spending at nearby businesses. That $1 billion dollars is the equivalent of an additional 1,000,000 Massachusetts gamblers losing $1,000 a year to the new casinos. That’s roughly 1 in 5 Massachusetts adults who will stop spending that money elsewhere, and start spending it at the casinos.
Now ask yourself these two revealing questions:
1. Where is that $1 billion dollars a year being spent now?
2. What happens to those businesses and their employees, once it no longer is?
