IFS Public Talk: Should the government stay out of our kitchen?

Over the last few years the government has introduced a number of policies aimed at altering people's diets - with the most notable new addition being the soft drinks levy. In this talk, we'll explore whether or not there is an economic rationale for such interventions and how economics can inform the design of policy in this area.

This IFS Public Talk will be given by Rebekah Stroud, Research Economist at the Institute for Fiscal Studies. This talk is jointly organised with the University of Manchester.

As with other public talks in this series, everyone is welcome to attend, and there will be plenty of time allowed for audience questions and debate.
