New York has passed the law about the size of soft drinks. You can't get anything larger than a 16 oz soda, so this is going to cure obesity? No, here's where this is going to backfire, MARK MY WORDS.
The price of a 24 oz soft drink will now be the price of a 16 oz soft drink. Restaurateurs are not stupid; they will still make their margins. And the customer will buy TWO, meaning he/she will get a 32 oz dose of soda. Mission accomplished, New York? I think NOT.
What is wrong with this law is that government is trying to tell businessmen how to run their businesses, and government is trying to legislate what the consumer spends his/her disposable income on.
It's wrong. What are your thoughts?
