Casino Gambling, Anti-Branding Explored in Business Newsletter


The impact of proposed legislation to legalize casino gambling is just one of several topics explored in the Fall 2015 issue of Business Analytics, a semi-annual publication from Dalton State’s Center for Economic Research and Entrepreneurship. The newsletter can be viewed at daltonstate.edu/cere by clicking on the Business Analytics link.

“We interview casino gambling expert, Dr. Doug Walker, to gain a better understanding of the issue,” said Dr. Brent Evans, assistant professor of economics and editor of the newsletter. “There has been quite a buzz around Georgia in regards to the proposed legalization of casino gambling. In this issue, we provide an eclectic mix of articles. Readers will also find information concerning anti-branding, honing recruitment and interviewing skills, and discussion of new tax laws.”

There is a brief article on the plans for an inland port in Murray County.

“This is an exciting time in Northwest Georgia as Gov. Deal recently announced plans for a vibrant inland port,” Evans said. “While readers will find some key details from this innovation in this edition, a more thorough discussion will be provided in the spring, which will include a myriad of ramifications of the project.”
