Title: Obesity: your problem or mine? : using a fatty food tax to fight the obesity epidemic
Author: Donahue, Tara
Abstract: This thesis examines the need for and use of a tax on unhealthy foods, including foods high in saturated and trans fats, as well as junk foods and soda, in the campaign against obesity. The thesis first outlines the definition and function of a "fat tax," and then responds to the main arguments against the tax. Through the combination of several current proposed taxes, the thesis outlines a tax which is highly effective, fair to low-income households, and easy to administer.
