Editorial Cites Mackinac Center Research

Research and analysis by Mackinac Center experts dating back more than 15 years forms much of the basis for this Detroit News editorial calling on the Legislature to change Michigan’s alcohol control policies.

In particular, the editorial cites calculations by Michael LaFaive, director of the Morey Fiscal Policy Initiative, showing that Michigan’s regulatory regime leads to a 37 percent mark-up on spirituous liquor compared to neighboring Indiana.
