Is Political Betting on the Rise? / Personal_Finance / Gambling

By: Submissions

With Brexit, the subsequent resignation of David Cameron and the election of Donald Trump as US President, last year was undoubtedly an interesting year for politics. You could make a point that the last 12 months or so have generated more interest in politics than ever before.

With all the interest and media coverage, there's one area of politics that often gets somewhat overlooked; it's betting markets. Amongst the plethora of huge sporting events regularly being promoted by bookmakers, we often ignore the undoubted value that exists in the political betting market.

By: .....

Over its 19 year history, 888 Holdings has grown from being a start-up in the British Virgin Islands to become a major name in the online gaming world. It has recently hit the headlines due to an attempted takeover, alongside The Rank Group, of the betting giant William Hill.

Ron Paul on U.S. Internet Gambling Ban: A Losing Bet for Us All / Politics / Gambling

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Most Americans, regardless of ideology, oppose "crony capitalism" or "cronyism." Cronyism is where politicians write laws aimed at helping their favored business beneficiaries. Despite public opposition to cronyism, politicians still seek to use the legislative process to help special interests.

It is an open secret, at least inside the Beltway, that this legislation is being considered as a favor to billionaire casino owner, Sheldon Adelson. Mr. Adelson, who is perhaps best known for using his enormous wealth to advance a pro-war foreign policy, is now using his political influence to turn his online competitors into criminals.

You know this isn't your grandfather's market when a company pushing chicken wings (Buffalo Wild Wings) sells at over 40 times earnings. And when a company that dominates retail but doesn't make any money (Amazon) trades for $350 a share. And when a company that pumps old movies, TV shows, and a sliver of new content to subscribers trades at 280 times earnings (Netflix).
