Black market price ratio 1933

1933 price data

Lewis Landes, lawyer for the Wholesale Liquor Dealers Committee of New York City, accused a “Distillers’ Trust” of keeping legal prices to wholesalers “exorbitant” — about three times the black market price.  This is from page 296 of Tax on Intoxicating Liquor, Hearings Before the Committee on Ways and Means, House of Representatives and the Committee on Finance, United States Senate, 73d Congress, Interim, 1st and 2d Sessions (Dec. 11-14, 1933).
