David G. Schwartz (Faculty Affairs) recently had an essay called "The Consumer Age Turned Americans into Gamblers: When the Economy Shifted from Production to Consumption, How You Spent Your Money Mattered More Than How You Earned It." This essay, commissioned by Zocalo Public Square for "What It Means to Be American," a national conversation hosted by the Smithsonian and Arizona State University, examines how the shift of the U.S. economy from production to consumption enabled the on-going expansion of legal gambling.
