Arizona Impact

A recent study completed by Jonathan Taylor, The Economic Impact of Tribal Gaming on Arizona 2014, demonstrated that, like all casino gaming, the benefits flow out from the source. At right, Taylor reviewed the expenditures tribes make within the state just with direct payments, not even the indirect benefits. Taylor is president of the Taylor Policy Group, an economics and public policy consultancy, a research affiliate at the Harvard Project on American Indian Economic Development at the Kennedy School of Government, and a senior policy associate at the Native Nations Institute, Udall Center for Studies in Public Policy, University of Arizona, Tucson.
