Too bad that David Zetland’s latest idea is impossible in a world with politics:
People are discussing a soda tax. Forget that — just stop subsidizing the corn that’s made into the HFCS that goes into soda.
End obesity and a stupid ag subsidy at that same time.
My version for health care would be
People are discussing health care legislation and new government mandates. Forget that — just stop giving employer-provided health insurance asymmetric and favorable tax treatment.
End perverse cost-increasing incentives and a subsidy that clogs up labor mobility at the same time.
