Long and Short Term Impact from Covid-19

Resilience for Tribal Communities

In this week’s interview, we chat with one of the most knowledgeable experts on economic issues related to the gaming industry, Alan Meister, Ph.D., CEO & Principal Economist, Meister Economic Consulting.

Today, we’ll hear his take on long-term and short-term implications and the impact on Tribal infrastructure through the loss of gaming revenue. Although the numbers are grim, Alan shares his reasons why he believes Tribes are very resilient and will be able to thrive again.

Alan is issuing a “Coronavirus Impact on Tribal Gaming Report” every other week, and in today’s chat, he shares a number of stats including revenue, job, revenue sharing and tax losses. The most updated numbers will be released tomorrow – May 5, 2020 – on his website.
