In Mexico, you can get most kinds of sodas in 3 liter bottles. At 17 pesos ($1.33) for 3 liters, Pepsi is cheaper than water.
Note the 3-peso penalty if you buy two 1.5-liter bottles.
It’s hardly a coincidence that Mexico has high soda consumption and high rates of obesity. Taxing sodas seems like a particularly good idea in this situation.
Next public appearance
This is the rescheduling of the lecture I was supposed to give on October 10. The taxi driver went through red light at entrance to the Pulaski, was pulled over and found to be driving without a license. We never made it. The lecture is on food politics. It starts at 6:00. Free and open to the public. The Newark Museum is at 49 Washington Street. This time, I’ll take the PATH.
