Question
Based on the economics of tax incidence, discuss how the intensity of protest over imposition of the excise tax on whiskey to pay for the national debt incurred during the U.S. Revolutionary War may be related to the supply and demand elasticities of whiskey during the late 1700’s. Assume that the demand for whiskey was elastic during the late 1700’s and that the supply of whiskey produced in the frontier regions of the country was inelastic during this time period.
