It's pointing out that food corporations, the food industry, does have some culpability and responsibility in the obesity/unhealthiness epidemic. They're a part of the problem whether they want to admit it or not imo.
    Yes corporations try to lure you into eating thier product. But in the end it is YOU and no one else that determines what ultimately goes into your mouth. I take full responsibility for what I eat....and smoke. No one but me made the choice to eat what I do and no one but me made the choice to smoke that very first ciggarette.

    Only if people could take responsibility for their actions instead of blaming others. This is the crux of our society today.

    Strongly disagree. I can't know every chemical and substance food manufacturers put in food. It's a classical example for delegation of power.

    The trouble with the market is selling poison is fine. If you're willing to buy it, or too stupid, or if I'm slick enough to sell it, the market say AOK, and it is your fault you're dead.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Did I say anything different? You can buy poison. They can sell poison. Where did I say this couldn't happen?

    The human body and brain were adapted to help monkey-men hunt and gather food in the plains of Africa. Our appreciation for sweet and salty foods were necessary back then, but not so much now that we've invented agribusinesses. Resisting our natural gravitation towards sweets and salts takes up mental energy, since you have to mentally push yourself to eat leafy greens instead of cheeseburgers. This is obviously much harder when society paves the road to cheeseburgers and soda into a four lane highway and leaves the road to leafy greens a small dirt path.

    People are going to bitch, but if the government is eventually going to have to foot part of the bill for their medical expenses, they've definitely got an interest in moderating excesses. "A pinch of prevention is worth a pound of cure," or however that adage goes. I say the government should use a light touch, but accept that people profiting from the status quo are going to get pissed off no matter what. We should definitely tweak farm subsidies so that taxpayers aren't subsidizing crap like high fructose corn oil. Public education campaigns are a no brainer. I also wonder about giving tax breaks to people that get a clean bill of health from their doctors.
