Stagflation makes you thinner?

Restaurant chain TGI Friday’s now advertises “right-sized” (i.e. small) entrees for $5.99.

But this happy development is a causative flyspeck alongside the implications of the exploding price of corn syrup, exacerbated by the midwest floods. If the price of a Big Gulp doubles, America may save more money on health care than it spends on food.

Not so helpful to the truly poor, of course.
