Liquor Privatization

How does it feel to earn a failing grade? Every Pennsylvanian should know—we recently received an "F" in wine consumer friendliness in a report by the American Wine Consumer Coalition (AWCC).

Why is Pennslvania failing and how can we achieve an "A" grade next year? There's one simple answer: privatization. Here's an exerpt from the report:

The Pennsylvania government completely controls and participates in the retail sale of wine in that state, depriving Pennsylvania wine lovers of the benefits of free trade and the better selection and pricing is allows.

Tom Wark, executive director for the AWCC, was kind enough to join CF experts to discuss the report in depth in our latest Google+ Hangout.
