PUTTING ETHICAL ISSUES OF TOURISM INDUSTRY IN SOCIO/ECONOMIC PERSPECTIVE, THE SLOVENIAN CASE OF GORIŠKA REGION Print E-mail

Tamara Besednjak Valič

Abstract

Solely economic view over the relation between costs and benefits of tourist industry nowadays no longer suffice. The author will made an attempt to put some of the most evident ethical issues with the emphasis on the size of the tourist facility in sociological perspective. In the paper we will aim towards enlightening the situation where claims state that more non-gambling related entertainment offer in casinos actually contribute towards more benefits than costs of gambling. Tentative conclusion show, that gambling related problems at younger generation of high school pupils do not seem to be directly connected with the size of gambling facilities and their offer in a region but they are based on other gambling games not conducted in casinos and gambling halls.

Key words Tourism, gambling, size of gambling facility, gambling problems.
