The Bottom Line: The Promise And Peril Of The Casino Question

Nov 4, 2016

Providence Business News Editor Mark Murphy joins Rhode Island Public Radio's Dave Fallon for our weekly business segment, The Bottom Line. 

This week, Dave speaks with Dr. Patrick T. Kelly, Associate Professor of Accountancy at Providence College School of Business.

Ballot Question 1 asks voters to approve or deny a request to build a casino in Tiverton. There's already some saturation when it comes to the area’s casino market. How much could one generate in state revenues? Could the proposed Tiverton casino take a bite out of Massachusetts' gambling revenues? And why hasn't there been more public debate about the casino question? Dave and his guests debate these questions and more.

When to listen:

You can hear The Bottom Line each Friday at 5:50 pm on Rhode Island Public Radio, 88.1 FM, 91.5 FM and 102.7 FM.
