Cheaper by the Twelve-Pack? Not in Finland

The Finnish Parliament has adopted some new controls on alcohol labelling and marketing, including a measure prohibiting volume discounts. It cannot be cheaper, on a per-beer basis, to buy a 12-pack than to buy a single beer, and Finnish restaurants cannot sell bottles of wine more cheaply than the equivalent per-glass price. It is possible that this new law will serve to reduce the price of a glass of wine in restaurants, of course.
