You can think of tobacco or lobbying as you like. But finding out the connections and interactions between these and other interesting topics is still very exciting. For example, we have seen a correlation between tobacco advertising expenditure in the USA and electricity imports in Brazil. You think that’s not possible? You’re wrong. See here:
A way to interpret this:
Electricity import into Brazil depends on the tobacco lobbying in the US – the more advertising is done by the tabacco lobby, the more electricity is importet into Brazil. Or the other way around: the less advertising is done by the tabacco lobby, the less electricity is importet into Brazil. How could that be? Perhaps declining advertising expenditures also lead to a declining demand of tobacco. And a decline in demand in turn has consequences for tobacco-producing countries, for example that less tobacco has to be cultivated and therefore the electricity requirement of the cultivation decreases.
Or in contrast, can you imagine a way where the electricity import of Brazil has a direct impact on the tobacco expenditures in the US?
