With someone who is financially stable, they can handle the burden of a fat tax without an issue. Such a tax would “fall most directly on the poor, nonwhite people who tend to be the most avid consumers of soft drinks and the most sensitive to price”(Engber). Now it is true that it would impact the poor the heaviest. But it would be a heavily effective measure to reduce consumption of the soft drinks from them if it was to be taxed heavily. It does come to the question on if these products should be considered luxury goods.
Even if the human body looked thin from the outside there is a chance that it has fat from the inside.

In David Freedman’s essay How Junk food Can End Obesity, Freedman makes the claim to policy arguing that instead of demonizing processed foods, Americans should instead support the idea and production of healthier processed and junk foods. He calls on the public to recognize that while many products on the market these days are labeled as “wholesome” and “healthy”, consumers should learn to become aware of the fat and calorie content in these products because many times they have the same- if not more- fat and calorie contents as that of a typical Big Mac or Whopper. In his essay, Freedman primarily places blame on the media and the wholesome food movement for the condemnation of the fast and processed food industries saying, “An enormous amount of media space has been dedicated to promoting the notion that all processed food, and only processed food, us making us sickly and overweight” (Freedman), he further expresses that this portrayal of the

Only a very small percentage of the studies relate pop to obesity. The industry’s only concern is to make money, without any regard to how it affects the population. The author claims that scientific results can be influenced by money. If the researcher has any connection to the company it is likely the researcher made changes to his or her results that supports the company.
This means more profit for businesses because the rise on food and oil means more money in their wallet but less money in consumers’ wallets, “Similarly, when homeowners benefit from inflation because the price of their homes rises, while renters suffer because they are paying higher rent” (ch.8 p. 15). Hence government should step in to intervene in businesses, but it is a completely different story if we are running out of food and oil rather than just raising the price because they want to. When businesses are filling up their account with more money, but leaving their consumers with less money in their wallet there is a problem and it will hurt the supply and demand law. That being the case, government should be given the authority to regulate markets only to an extent to make sure the inflation level stays at a reasonable
