Taxing Sugar in Drinks
To me connecting the economics' material to my students' lives is paramount - as long as they can see where it falls in what we have been discussing. Hence I have done a number of posts on homework. So this article on whether we should tax sugar in a drink is an excellent way as it would raise a can of Coke nearly 10 cents and definitely cut shift demand to a lower level. What else might it do would be a good question for students.
