Tax to rise on zero-alcohol beer

Why not just raise the tax on bad beer (alcohol) and lower it on good beer (no alcohol)?  How do people with no brains get into such elevated positions?

Absolutely - then change the labels so bad beer gets reborn as good beer and taxed accordingly

Thai government is looking for a way to increase the revenue so they can compensate the money they used on economic stimulus programs.  They impose taxes on zero alcohol beers and sugary drinks to make up for it.

This is strange!? 

I always thought that you should promote the better alternative.

Here they are adding more tax on that instead. Wonder what effect that will have?

I totally agree. The closer it gets to the price of alcoholic beer the less incentive there is to drink it. Thus potentially encouraging people to drink alcohol. Right hand, left hand.

I'm 55 - and I'm sure many of you are older and wiser - but I have yet to meet anyone that turned from a non-alcoholic beer drinker into a rampant drunk

Whilst there is no evidence that .non-alcoholic beer is a "gateway" drink, with those imbibing moving on to alcohol. There is clear evidence that a large number of those who start on breast milk/formula, moving onto water will progress onto beer and even hard spirits.

Many brands in most supermarkets, you really have to make an effort not to see ..
I prefer the Korean beer and if not available Heineken zero. I stopped drinking alcoholic drinks 6 y ago and this alcohol-free beer is really a welcome variation. Special tax on beer is as stupid as the ban on vaping.

I often read about Thais thinking "if business slow, raise prices".

 

Now I read about a failing economy and that Prayut has ordered a study of the "little" people and ask for ways to improve their lives. So in true Thai thinking, his government keeps dreaming up more taxes (same as raising prices).

I really wonder where the ministers of this government come from, it seems that they are making the race with the most busted ideas!
