Drink as an Economic Vice

DR. Harold Mann delivered an interesting lecture at Bombay dealing with drink as an economic vice. After the war there would arise the great economic crisis and the effect of the pinch would be felt in Europe and also India. Few people in India are preparing to face the problems arising after the war. The drink revenue is increasing and the prices of necessary articles of food are increasing too. The economic strain is severely felt even now by all except a small percentage of the population who are above the poverty line. Labour is showing signs of uneasiness. It is, therefore, necessary to adopt suitable economic reforms to prevent further troubles.
