This is a revision presentation on minimum prices as a form of government intervention in markets

Minimum prices are price floors and are most commonly associated with minimum wages in the labour market or guaranteed price support schemes for farmers or other producers.

Our basic analysis in this section focuses on this. But please be aware that there is also a debate over introducing some form of minimum pricing for consumers of de-merit goods – this will impact more directly on the demand side of a market.

As with all forms of government intervention, the analysis comes first because it is easier to build solid evaluation having already explored the theoretical ideas!
