Rutgers forms center for study of gambling

As college basketball fans prepare to immerse themselves in March Madness, Rutgers University today announced the creation of a new Center for Gambling Studies, which will delve into everything from sports betting to Internet poker to gambling's social and legal effects. (Star-Ledger, NJ)

Lia Nower, a nationally-known scholar on gambling and director of the new center, said the research is important because legalized gambling is a huge economic engine in New Jersey and both legal and illegal gambling are growth industries.
