Regarding New York City Mayor Bloomberg's proposal to ban sugary drinks over 16 ounces, former Coca-Cola executive Hank Cardello said:
"Bans are an unfair as they treat everyone the same with a 'one-size-fits-all approach.'"Soda taxes affect the poor disproportionately.1 Soda bans affect everyone. I wonder if this is contributing to the apparent stronger push-back against the ban.
