A vast literature analysed the tobacco industry in the past. However, most of the previous studies dealt with final demand or crop production. Instead, there are only a few works that examined the whole tobacco industry in general, and the Italian and Greece in particular.This book aims to filling this gap: this contribution is even needed if we take into account that tobacco consumption is currently decreasing, but there is the possibility to grow tobacco for others purposes thanks to biotechnologies. In this context, quantitative models of the tobacco industry can be of great help for policy making.To achieve this aim, the book is organized in three parts, which describe three different quantitative approaches: an econometric modelling approach, a linear programming approach and an Input - Output approach.This book can be therefore of interest to both public policy makers, as well as academics and private investors, involved in the tobacco industry.
