Dr. Powell’s perspectives on fast food regulation featured on Seeking Alpha and Minyanville

Justin Rohrlich of Minyanville.com featured Dr. Powell’s perspectives on regulation of Happy Meal toys in article that he published today, which was subsequently summarized on Seeking Alpha. The article described how McDonald’s circumvented a regulation intended to prevent it from selling Happy Meals by requiring Happy Meal purchasers to make a charitable donation in order to receive the customary toy. In the article, Dr. Powell said, ““This is a perfect example of how hard it is to create a regulation that achieves the intended effect,” and further noted that people “may feel even better about buying Happy Meals now that there’s a built-in charity component involved.”
