About John W. Kindt:

Kindt_resizeSince 1990, Professor Kindt has probably been best known as one of the most well-published academics in issues relating to gambling. He has served as a senior editor, contributing author, and intermittent co-author of the United States International Gambling Report and United States International Gaming Report (i.e., U.S. Int’l Gambling Report). Professor Kindt’s academic research and publications contributed to the enactment of the 1996 U.S. National Gambling Impact Study Commission, the U.S. Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006, and various other Federal and state statutes.

After receiving a B.A. in Business from William and Mary in 1972, Professor Kindt earned four graduate degrees in Law and Business: J.D. 1976 and MBA 1977 from the University of Georgia and LL.M 1978 and SJD 1981 from the University of Virginia. During the 1970s, Professor Kindt was employed in several state and Federal government positions. He also served as a Senior Fellow at the London School of Economics.

Professor Kindt’s research has resulted in over 70 academic articles in the areas of legalized gambling economic impacts, antitrust law, tax law, commercial law, environmental law, and public and private international law. He is also known for his multi-volume book, Marine Pollution and the Law of the Sea. Professor Kindt’s teaching has been cited several times as being outstanding.

Recently, Professor Kindt testified before the Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security, and Investigations of the Committee on the Judiciary. The testimony pertained to internet gambling, and can be accessed online both in print and on YouTube. In this testimony, Kindt links tax giveaways to gambling insiders to the bankrupt budgets of 28 states.

Gambling Threat to World Public Order and Stability: Internet Gambling (2013) (United States International Gambling Report Series)

Titles in the United States International Gambling Report series contain reprints of many important government documents and academic source materials relevant to gambling issues, divided topically. A major goal of the series is the preservation of documents in danger of being lost, particularly in their historical context; therefore, each document is preceded by historical commentary. The reprinted documents are primarily substantive reference materials, particularly those contributing to determinations of Congressional intent, as well as the motivations of Federal/state decision makers and legislators. The front matter contains a preface, introduction, note on censorship by big gambling and erudite executive summaries of both U.S. and Amer. Indian gambling which list strategic determinations, problems, goals, background, trends and conditioning factors.
