Excerpts from the Paper

The beginning:
Liquor Licensing in the U.K. and Brazil
In the domain of liquor licensing, Brazil and the U.K. stand in stark contrast to each other. Brazil’s liquor licensing laws are nonexistent, whereas liquor licensing in the U.K. is tightly regulated. This essay will compare the state of liquor licensing in the two countries, with special attention to the role of intercultural differences in the formation of the two completely distinct regulatory attitudes. The conclusion is that, in the U.K., the impetus for liquor licensing comes from historical and cultural precedents on the one hand, and from a different economic understanding of external costs on the other hand.
