The devastating health effects and the costs involved in treating the affected, further intensified the internal conflict within the Indian government and made the decision to ban tobacco advertising a difficult one. My opinion on what governments should do in regards to tobacco advertising My personal opinion is that tobacco advertising should be heavily regulated and any advert must portray the damage done by the use of the product. Companies should be allowed to advertise, but at the same time they should be honest and informative about the consequences of using their products. Conclusion When coming to summarize this case analysis, one cannot escape the feeling of how charged an issue this is. Arguments for and against tobacco advertising seems to sway the pendulum back and forth.

Currently in the United States, 36.5 million people smoke cigarettes, specifically tobacco, but also other types of cigarettes too. Some may do this for supposed recreational needs, and others simply for the enjoyment of it. One may not think much of it, but the effects of smoking are serious and can be life-threatening to one’s health.

Quality product is critical to just-in-time (JIT) purchasing system. Poor product quality from a supplier can disrupt the entire supply chain and result in expensive production. If Bose corporation receives a poor-quality that they need to send back to the supplier, entire Bose’s production processes disrupted. Such occurrences can shut down production line in some cases. Since Bose uses JIT system which minimizes inventory.
It is not the tobacco companies fault for peoples overusing tobacco products and using tobacco incorrectly. When people buy tobacco products they should how to use and know when they are using the product too much.

Externalities What is an externality? Externalities are costs (negative externalities) and benefits (positive externalities), which are not reflected in free market prices. Externalities are sometimes referred to as 'by-products', 'spillover effects', 'third-party effects' or 'side-effects', as the generator of the externality, either producers or consumers, or both and impose the costs or benefits on others who are not responsible for initiating the effect. The key feature of an externality is that it is initiated and experienced, not through the operation of the price system, but outside the market. Externalities are divided into various types, some of them are as follows.
More than 30 diseases have a direct link to alcohol in their name in the International Classification of Diseases. These negative impacts on health can be very costly for countries, for example, it is estimated that alcohol costs the UK £21 billion annually. Although consuming alcohol has many negative impacts to someone’s health, often the most felt impact is the social burden of alcohol. Alcohol has a detrimental effect on the work place; people who drink on a consistent basis will not be able to reach their optimal level of productivity. Alcohol consumption is also heavily linked with crime; in the UK over half of violent incidents (53%) happen under the influence of alcohol.
The market for sugary drinks is an example of market failure. Market failure is a situation in which the allocation of goods and services is not efficient. Since there are negative externalities of consumption with sugary drinks, the MPB is greater than the MSB. This means that the marginal private benefit of consumption is greater than the marginal social benefit of consumption. The difference between the two is due to the negative externalities that occur, such as waste from production of sugary drinks as well as the health risks of consuming them.
Price elasticity of demand (PED) should be relatively lower than price elasticity of supply (PES); in this case, the tax incidence on consumers, being important stakeholders is greater than the tax incidence on producers as consumers are unresponsive to changes in price, producers can pass on a relatively large burden of tax onto the consumers as they’re unresponsive. The economic incidence indicates the extent to which someone is made worse off by the
Regulations Nanny States put into place for recycling are that households and businesses must have two separate garbage cans: one for trash, and one for recyclables. If this law is disobeyed, you could be finned in San Francisco. In conclusion, I am on the fence with the topic of Nanny States. On one hand they can protect citizens and our planet from carelessness. Carelessness such as not recycling, or smoking cigarettes causing other people to get sick or uncomfortable.
Marijuana has been proven to damage the layers of cells that line the inside of the lungs, which is why smoking marijuana causes coughing and wheezing. It has also been shown to cause cases of air pockets between the two lungs in young and middle-aged adults. Marijuana and tobacco smoke share many of the same compounds. Tobacco smoking is associated with numerous adverse pulmonary clinical outcomes,
