Do Advertising Bans Work? An International Comparison
AbstractAdvertising bans can increase or decrease alcohol consumption due to effects on beverage choice, price competition, and substitution by producers toward nonbanned media. We study bans on broadcast advertising in seventeen OECD countries for the years 1977-95, in relation to per capita alcohol consumption, liver cirrhosis mortality, and motor vehicle fatalities. The results indicate that advertising bans in OECD countries have not decreased alcohol consumption or alcohol abuse.
