Drinking in Europe   posted by Razib @ 11/18/2007 11:13:00 PM

Nothing too surprising in this story about attitudes toward alcohol in Europe. From Finland:
Since the government cut tax on alcohol by one third in March 2004, deaths and diseases from alcohol have all jumped by similar amounts in hard-drinking Finland.

The cut was made due to cheap alcohol imports from neighbouring Estonia.

People respond to tax incentives!
