Summary
New Zealand, in common with all economically developed countries, is experiencing an obesity epidemic. Obesity is associated with significantly increased morbidity and mortality risks. Public health measures proposed to combat obesity include so-called fat taxes. But are fat taxes justifiable? Using a benchmark of proportionality, but also drawing on a wide range of economic and public health literature, this article seeks to answer that question. It is concluded that fat taxes are generally dispropotionate and should not, therefore, play a significant role in public health responses to the obesity epidemic
