Tax Soda, Sell More Beer

 A new PLos One study by Lisa Powell and Julien Lader, compared beverage consumption in Seattle and Portland after Seattle, but not Portland, instituted a "sugar tax" on soda. They found a 7% increase in beer consumption in Seattle relative to Portland. They estimate the cross-price elasticity to be 0.35. The tax was meant to cut the medical costs of obesity due to excess sugar intake. The social costs to additional beer drinking may be even higher. Not only is beer calorie rich, people tend to function less well while inebriated, leading to various injuries. Below are the raw trends in beer sales.








 

 

From a managerial perspective, beer distributors who anticipated the substitution would have increased production enough to maximize profits from this shift in demand.

  2. I'm so happy to share this with you that can read / see this now. When I started trading binary and forex a few months ago, I really didn't have the necessary tools to trade and I lost a lot until I met Pablo Martinez who taught me all about market psychology as he managed my account for me. Today I am grateful to him for his great offer and help because it really changed my financial situation with an investment capital of $1500 and now I'm earning around $35,500 - $30,000 profits per week. Here is his WhatsApp no: +44 7520 636249 or his email address: pm7234029@gmail.com
