Just as you begin to assemble necessaries for Thursday’s feast, I devote a show to the country’s ever expanding collective waistline.

Author, economist and beloved professor at UCI’s School of Management until his retirement this summer, Dr. Richard McKenzie has just issued Heavy! The Surprising Reasons America is the Home of the Free –and the Land of the Fat, a layman’s guide to the economic theory and real world consequences of free markets and their impact food, eating and cheap calories.

Freakonomics meets the problem of heavy people flying next to you this Wednesday.

Dr. Mark Bronstein also will join me to discuss the reality of the explosion of diabetes in the United States, its consequences and prevention, and what it means for long term health care costs.

Just the show to begin the season of over-indulgence.
