I'm conducting a poll and debate for a Modern studies assignment. This is to collect view points on the proposition of a minimum price per unit of alcohol, making cheap spirits, wines and beer priced based on alcohol content. Please feel free to express your opinion and follow the link to answer my survey. https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk...

What do you think? If there is no minimun alcohol sells for, then people won't get drunk.

Binge drinking is arguably a serious problem which can led onto health problems or anti social behaviour and therefore making high alcohol content drinks cost based on the amount of alcohol in them would stop people buying cheap alcohol in large quantities just to become intoxicated.

Not sure what to say right now. If there's no minimum price, people can choose what price to set their beverages. Now that I'm thinking, minimum doesn't care about the highest price.

Alcohol should be priced based on supply and demand, not based on some social construct that people make up.

Everything must have a minimum, since that's the smallest amount. Without a smallest amount, there's infinite. Minimum is what makes things possible and logical.
