Should Soft Drinks be Taxed More Heavily?

Source: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association

From the overview article:

The articles in this theme consider a controversial policy issue: whether sweetened soda should be subject to increased taxation. The justification for such taxes relates both to economics and public health, but such taxes are hardly without critics. The authors of these articles are drawn from numerous fields: medicine, public health, economics, applied economics, political science, public affairs, and industry. They represent a cross-section of informed opinion and analysis that we hope will be helpful as the debate unfolds.

[This and six other articles are part of the Agricultural and Applied Economics Association Policy Series on a sugar tax. They are published together in an edition of the Association's online-only Choices magazine.]
