The ﬁrm must choose between domestic sales and exports. Exports preclude sales at the market price abroad.

Norton assumes that trading in the Abroad market yields the ﬁrm zero economic proﬁts. An Tobacco Smuggling 45 ad valorem tax of t percent is imposed on Home sales. In the case of smuggling, there is some probability of detection, upon which the smuggled goods are subject to a ﬁne.
Norton assumes that trading in the Abroad market yields the ﬁrm zero economic proﬁts. An Tobacco Smuggling 45 ad valorem tax of t percent is imposed on Home sales. In the case of smuggling, there is some probability of detection, upon which the smuggled goods are subject to a ﬁne. The ﬁrm chooses its legal and illegal sales to maximize proﬁts. A detailed description of the variables used in the model follows: Q = quantity (ﬁxed) available to the trader p = price Abroad t = ad valorem tax, payable by exporter on Home sales [p (1 + t)+ θ]: market price throughout Home θ is assumed to be small relative to p and it could be positive, negative or zero, depending upon how much of the tax is passed to the consumer.
Individual-level data sets have several advantages over aggregated data sets, including 1) measurement problems accounting for cross-border sales and smuggling are no longer relevant, 2) the econometric problems associated with possible two-way causality between the consumption and price variables do not have to be addressed, and, 3) the researcher can obtain elasticity estimates for speciﬁc population subgroups (for example youth, lowincome, ethnic groups) and estimate the effect of prices on the decision of whether or not to consume tobacco as well as the quantity consumed.
