Sure, obesity is a problem, but what do you think about this attempt to address it?
NYC is also considering decriminalizing possession of "small" amounts of marijuana
What kind of market adjustment do you have in mind? Cheap home-cooked food can be cheaper than fast / junk food, but adding the time and equipment it takes to prepare food at home can make it less attractive for the people who would respond most strongly to economic incentives and who now rely the most on fast food. Some kind of tax / subsidy scheme to alter costs and benefits?Q.U. wrote:Market needs to be adjusted so that junk food is NEVER cheaper and more accessible than home cooked food.

Well at this point they might as well just ban it. I think they missed the time to start doing something by about 30 years already.
