Should cigarettes be banned in public places?

Economic Note on the economic considerations such a ban represents

Should cigarettes be banned in public places?

Many governments in North America and Europe have moved toward a ban on cigarette smoking in public places, or are planning to do so. Defenders of this approach argue that second-hand tobacco smoke causes health risks for non-smokers, who should be protected through a ban on smoking in public places. This leads to major economic considerations. An economic approach is needed for a full assessment of the relevance of such measures.
