Summary
Obesity is an ongoing problem in many countries including New Zealand and its long-term health consequences impact on society through increased health care costs and losses in productivity. Although different types of unhealthy food contribute to obesity, the one singled out as being the leading single contributor is soft drink. A a result, the current focus in many countries, rather than being on healthy food in general, is to consider the use of the fiscal system to reduce the consumption of soft drinks. New Zealand is one of the many countries that do not have a tax system that specifically targets the consumption of soft drinks even though statistics show the correlation between increased consumption of soft drinks and obesity. This article provides some insights into several issues that have been raised in the literature on whether taxation should be used to regulate the consumption of soft drinks
