New papers from the Wine Economists? Do we seek solace in alcohol or is it the other way around?

>> Tuesday, January 04, 2011

The Association of American Wine Economists has published two new intriguing papers. The first is about the development of economic thinking and viticulture. The second is on a more unexpected subject: it is a study on the correlation between monogamy and alcohol consumption. It turns out that in societies that move from polygamy to monogamy alcohol consumption apparently goes up. Is there a link between the two? The papers can be found here:

There’s also a post on the monogamy and drinks issue on Freakonomics: "Do We Drink Because We’re Monogamous, or Are We Monogamous Because We Drink?"
