Public good provision and deliberative democracy: Evidence from Malawi

January 29 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

Gambling is increasingly being framed as a public health issue due to growing recognition of the diverse gambling-related harms and the far-reaching consequences these have for individuals, their families and communities. The gambling industry also uses tactics that echo those used by multi-national tobacco and alcohol companies to induce and maintain demand.
