Sanc­tions tar­get U.S. gam­bling ban

Austin American-Statesman - - BALANCED VIEWS -

The tiny Caribbean na­tion of An­tigua & Bar­buda in­tends to pur­sue re­tal­ia­tory sanc­tions against U.S. com­mer­cial ser­vices and in­tel­lec­tual prop­erty as part of its David vs. Go­liath trade bat­tle with the United States, An­tigua Fi­nance Min­is­ter Harold Lovell an­nounced Sun­day. An­tigua ac­cuses the U.S. of hob­bling its frag­ile econ­omy by ban­ning Amer­i­cans from plac­ing on­line bets with gam­bling op­er­a­tors, in­clud­ing li­censed on­line casi­nos based in the twin­is­land na­tion.
