The Privatization of Liquor Retailing in Alberta

Printer-friendly version

The purpose of this paper is to take the opportunity offered by the Alberta experience with liquor retailing privatization to examine the sort of market structure and its characteristics that are produced by market forces under privatization and to compare these with the market structure and characteristics of the government-owned system. The impact of government-imposed restrictions on the evolution of an efficient retail distribution system under privatization is also assessed.
