Throw money at obesity

Boston Globe letter, September 21, 2015

THE HEADLINE of Joanna Weiss’s Sept. 11 opinion column — “Politicians are needed to help end the obesity crisis” — highlights its essential flaw.

So, what’s the solution she wants to see? New taxes? New subsidies? More politicians, guided by their contributors and lobbyists, picking economic winners and losers? More voters turning away in disgust from the ugly spectacle?
