In April 2005, forty years after its independence, the Government of Singapore permitted the establishment of casinos in the country. While the Singaporean government hopes to increase the attractiveness of the island as a global tourism hub, generate revenues and job opportunities, it also has to deal with strong opposition from domestic religious and social groups. These groups believe that introducing casinos in Singapore would result in individual bankruptcies and degradation of moral values.

Pedagogical Objectives:

  • To discuss the logic behind the Singapore government’s introduction of casinos
  • To discuss the ethical and moral issues involved in business.
