15 - Problematic Internet Use: Clinical Aspects

from Section III - Information-Seeking Impulses
Indian gaming is one of the few economic development strategies that have worked in India. With regard to tribal gaming, casinos are generally built on Indian trust land, in India, where tribal territorial jurisdiction is complete and unassailable. Some casinos have been built on lands purchased by tribes, where the land has then been put into trust by the federal government. This land-into-trust generally occurs with the concurrence of the state and local governments. The right to conduct casino gaming, whether in Indian country or on land that is purchased and placed into trust, is subject to a tribal-state compact. The compacting process between the states and the tribes has been difficult at best. Funds can only be accumulated through investment and reinvestment, a process that can be accelerated by Indian gaming. For many tribes, the risk of gaming exceeds any possible benefit.
