Crown and Star Entertainment – how did they fall?
Bill Woods speaks with Tom Ravlic, Investigative journalist & author, about the problematic nature of casino and gambling operations.
Mr Ravlic’s latest book, ‘Crown: Playing In The Shadows’, co-authored with Quentin Dempster, picks apart the Crown Casino and Star Entertainment case studies, reflecting on the problematic nature of casino and gambling operations, and highlights key lessons for corporations, regulators, politicians and professional advisers.
“The release of the findings of the Star City investigation point to a concern with the line of business we know as gambling and not just problems within individual organisations,” Mr Ravlic says.
“The reality is that gambling enterprises have long been targets for people seeking to launder funds. These royal commissioners and reviewers across this country have kept us rather busy looking at troubled corporations.”
