This is a second reply to Professor Walker that corrects additional errors by him. In his present commentary, Professor Walker again provides no new data or research, articulates comments that are already resolved through a careful reading of “Casinos, Crime, and Community Costs” (Grinols and Mustard, 2006) and declines to respond to the failings that we raised about his earlier critique. The reader is encouraged to read our original paper.

This article is a response to The Diluted Economics of Casinos and Crime: A Rejoinder to Grinols and Mustard’s Reply by Douglas M. Walker (EJW, May 2008).
