Last night I was a guest on CNBC's Kudlow Report with Larry Kudlow discussing the New York City ban on large sugary drinks. If you are like me, you aren't terribly interested in buying large sugary drinks in New York City. You can still get them in conveinece stores (your Big Gulp is safe!), but you can't get them in movie theaters. You'll just have to buy two 16 ounce cups if the ban is in force when and where you are really thirsty or want to share with a friend. So in a way, it is just a way to make large servings of soda more expensive, which is what the government is trying to do anyway.
But it isn't about soda. As I explained on CNBC, if the soda ban makes sense, then it makes sense to ban large hamburgers, large fries, a second scoop of ice cream, ad nauseam, literraly.
