The Tobacco Atlas, 4th Edition
Tobacco—the only consumer product proven to kill more than half of its regular users—is responsible for about six million deaths worldwide every year. One hundred million people were killed by tobacco in the 20th century. Unless effective measures are implemented to prevent young people from smoking and to help current smokers quit, tobacco will kill one billion people in the 21st century.
The latest edition of the groundbreaking Tobacco Atlas gives
shape and meaning to statistics about tobacco use and control.
Full-color maps and graphics illustrate in a clear and accessible
format the wide range of tobacco issues, revealing similarities and
differences between countries.
"A Modern Economic View of Tobacco Taxation" broke new ground by establishing a theoretical framework for viewing tobacco taxation as benefitting the poor. Gruber demonstrates that people may experience conflict between short-term desires and long-term goals and that this conflict leads to over-consumption of tobacco products. Since low-income individuals are more price-sensitive, raised taxes are of higher benefit to them, as taxes reduce consumption. The is available in Arabic, Chinese, Russian and Spanish on the Economics Report page.
