Drinkers Earn More Money

Men in The Netherlands who drink alcohol in moderation are likely to earn 10% more than their abstaining counterparts, according to a study of 650 Dutch men aged 26 to 55.

The study was conducted by economist Jan van Ours of Tilburg University and was published by the Centre for Economic Policy Research.

Research has similarly found that men in the U.S. who drink average about 7% higher earnings than abstainers.
