Asia's Growing Gambling Addiction

Below is my comment on the article of "Asia's Growing Gambling Addiction", TIME issued on November 1, 2007.

To my astonishment, so many new casinos are planning to build in Asian countries such as Vietnam, Singapore, and the Philippines in such a short period of time to catch up with the economic success of Macau, the recent Asian Mecca of casino resort. As your article pointed out precisely, Asia, especially China, seems to be more vulnerable to gambling than Europe and other regions because of its cultural and mental generosity to gambling. In order to avoid the problems caused by such weakness in those new casino resorts, central and provincial governments in those areas should in advance take strong leadership to build firm social infrastructure such as the places to teach residents some discipline, to give them some counseling and to keep social orders and public security. Among other places, Singapore seems to me the best place to have new casino resorts in that sense, although it is regarded as a dull place to enjoy now since the society is somewhat too rigid and strict.

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of troubles when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in large starting capital.
Nowadays, I feel good, I begin to get real money.
It's all about how to choose a correct partner who uses your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, and shares the profit with me.

You can ask, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them: [url=]Online Investment Blog[/url]
