The Canadian Government was able to achieve a reduction in cigarette smoking such that when the price was raised above $4 a pack adult smoking declined by 38% and teenage smoking declined by over 61%. What economic principle was at play here? Why the difference?
The US announced a stated goal of reducing teenage smoking by 30% in five years and 50% in seven years.  What would you propose the tax rate should be over that period of time and why?
