St. Patrick's Day, Ireland and Competition Policy

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

You could not ask for better timing.  Earlier this year, the Irish Competition Authority undertook some competition advocacy work involving the alcohol sector.  As its news release on the report states, "The Competition Authority has called on the Alcohol Advisory Group not to recommend the re-introduction of a ban on below unit-cost selling of alcohol or minimum prices for alcohol. If the Advisory Group believes the price of alcohol should be raised to curb alcohol consumption, excise duty is a better means of addressing this."

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
