IT MAY BE A “PSYCHOLOGICAL TACTIC” BUT DOES THAT MEAN THAT WE NEED BIG BROTHER TO PROTECT US FROM IT?
I started reading this report because it referred to a proposal by the British Parliament’s Health Committee to impose a 20% surcharge on “sugary drinks,” but then I came to this statement about another proposal:
“[S]upermarkets would be banned from placing sweets and less healthy foods at the end of aisles and at the checkout, a psychological tactic commonly used to increase sales of those particular items.”
So the government of Britain is proposing to control where products are placed in the supermarket, because where certain products are placed is a “psychological tactic” that the citizens of that country need their government to protect them from.
