Economists claim ‘Fat’ is ‘Socially Contagious’

November 14, 2008

Professor David Blanchflower, who sits on the Bank of England’s monetary policy committee, and Professor Andrew Oswald, an expert on the economics of wellbeing, claim that the nation’s expanding waistline could be down to people subconsciously trying to ‘keep up with the weight of the Joneses’.

Bollocks!!!

The reason that people in similar areas have similar body shapes is because they have similar financial problems. Cheaper food options usually have a higher fat and sugar content (they’re also more likely to contain hydrogenated fat), a fact which not only promotes obesity, it also makes the food more addictive. Despite the whimpers of middle class executive wankers the poor suffer more stress than the financially stable and are more likely to turn to cigarettes, alcohol and junk food. And food producers are all to happy to exploit the situation.

An ‘economist’ is a pseudo-scientist who is employed as an apologist for the wealthy; they’re usually too thick to get a proper scientific degree and are generally employed by their direct family or their mates from Eton. ‘Economics’ has about as much scientific basis as the guy down the bookies who swears he has “a system”. And a professor of an “economics of wellbeing” – WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT!
