The Smoke Economy-How Much Could You Save...

Even though fewer people are smoking, cigarette companies are find ways to keep making money. Our infographic takes you through how they continue to make a lot of money every year. Five tobacco companies control 80% of the market and they are always ready to test new markets if they find the profitability of other markets is down. For example, British American Tobacco is facing heavy lawsuits from African governments related to past and future healthcare costs related to smoking.

It is the smoker who helps to pick up the tab on the increased tax bill. Check out this infographic to find out more about the large revenues being enjoyed by big tobacco.
