Governing Online Gambling and Casino Capitalism
Each week, the Inside the Issues podcast series goes in-depth with a different CIGI expert on the most challenging issues in global governance. Hosted by CIGI Chair David Welch, these candid and timely discussions are available on the CIGI YouTube channel and on iTunes video and audio.
In episode 21, Andrew F. Cooper, CIGI Distinguished Fellow and author of "Internet Gambling Offshore," discusses the global governance implications of what the book calls "Casino Capitalism." He takes the fascinating case of Antigua - a small Caribbean country that launched a successful appeal against the United States at the World Trade Organization — as a hotbed for online gambling that ran afoul of American political and moral sensibilities. In doing so, Cooper suggests that Casino Capitalism has major implications for the politics of the global economy.
