A tax on sugar-sweetened beverages is an objectively good government policy
By: NickAdams, on 12 Jan 2016
A good government policy is defined here as one that pursues an interest of the public good effectively and without causing any undue burdens or externalities. An example of an undue burden or externality could be the destruction of jobs to an extent greater than the benefit of this tax to public health. This node graph may leave room for opinion, but I believe that having definitions for terms such as "good government policy" will help remove some subjectivity.
