Abstract: My main task is to investigate the potential consequences of privatization by
relying in microeconomic concepts, theories and comparison of different
models. In addition the main aim of the paper is to show that the
enforcement of monopoly is the best method on how to reduce alcohol
consumption and therefore alcohol-related harm. The research includes
theoretical background with regards to taxation, quotas and microeconomic
perspectives such as income and substitution effects. The data and theory
should support the claim that privatization will decrease prices and therefore
increase consumption. The theory of perfect competition will show the
theory behind the potential effects of privatization. In addition the
abolishment of import quota should increase the consumption as well.
