The efficiency of a volumetric alcohol tax in Australia

Joshua Byrnes, Dennis Petrie (), Christopher Doran () and Anthony Shakeshaft

Applied Health Economics and Health Policy, 2012, vol. 10, issue 1, 37-49

Abstract: From these scenarios, it can be shown that, for the same tax revenue, consumer welfare can be reduced or, for the same level of loss to consumer welfare, taxation revenue can be increased. Both these scenarios result in a reduction of pure alcohol consumption. Copyright Adis Data Information BV 2012
