Much is known about how to change alcohol policy to reduce harm, but despite the evidence little action has been taken at the
national level in the United States. Government officials have shown little interest in putting prevention research results to work.
The influence of the alcohol industry on policy-makers combined with free market ideology has thwarted change despite the
efforts of advocacy groups working to reduce harm. The role of the alcohol industry at the national and international level serves
as a powerful deterrent to policy change.
