Research Seminar by Marco Francesconi (University of Essex)

On Thursday, April 30 at  4.40 pm, room 3211 (Shabolovka st., 26) ICEF held the Research Seminar.
Speaker: Marco Francesconi (University of Essex)
Theme: "The Cost of Binge Drinking"

Abstract: We estimate the effect of binge drinking on accident and emergency attendances, road accidents, arrests and the number of police officers on duty using a variety of unique data from Britain and a two-sample minimum distance estimation procedure. Our estimates, which reveal sizeable effects of bingeing on all outcomes, are then used to monetize the short-term externalities of binge drinking. We find that these externalities are on average £4.9 billion per year ($7 billion), about £80 for each man, woman and child living in the UK. The price that internailizes this externality is equivalent to an additional 9p per alcoholic unit, implying a 20% increase with respect to the current average price.

Everyone interested is welcome to attend!
