"I would say if there were more than three of you I would run a tab. These are the kinds of things that policy makers and publicans should be thinking about," he told The Daily Telegraph, adding that the matter had been discussed with a senior official in the Cabinet Office.

Professor Thaler has authored the book Nudge: Improving Decisions About Health, Wealth And Happiness.

He also said that councils could also make decisions about lowering or raising the age for drinking.
