Drinking Can Enhance Your Social Capital

Have You Noticed That Drinkers Earn More?

A study conducted by a couple of economists found that people who drink in a social setting earn 10 to 14 percent more than those who save their drinking for home. More specifically, female drinkers earned 14 percent more than non-drinkers and male drinkers earned 10 percent more. The study contends that drinking can enhance "social capital, which entails everything from a person's charisma to the size of their social network," which may result in closer work relationships and more business contacts. Have you noticed this to be true in your own experience — does the happy hour crowd earn more or have more opportunities?
