Therefore, if a government regulatory agency were to make a decision about substantially curtailing the use of alcohol by adolescents to alleviate its long term effects, the agency could learn from economics theories surrounding supply and demand, particularly in relationship to binding price floors. But this would not work in isolation because of market factors. Therefore, the ultimate policy would incorporate educational methods as well. 5 works sited. jvAlcPrc.rtf
