Journal of Economic Regulation, , Vol. 6 (no. 3),

This paper analyzes the background, principles and forms of realization of the state policy in the sphere of production and sale of alcohol in pre-revolutionary Russia and the Soviet Union from the perspective of historical and genetic approach.

In this regard development of alcoholic branch has contradictory character in a certain degree. On the one hand, the income (taxes) from sale of alcohol makes a considerable share of the state budget, on the other hand, established the scale of human consumption of alcohol provoke negative social and demographic problems.
