The virus premise is quite smart, if the goal is a new market share. What this hopes to do is create the demand for new goods and services, while not interfering with the food industries, who are also capitalizing on fat people. If you look how it adds up this all makes sense and the path is to success is clear.
Here is my analysis of the situation. The government run, war against poverty, controlled by the democrats, spent trillions of dollars over 50 years, but did not change the rate of people living in poverty.
What it did do was help create the demographics with the highest rates of obesity in the country. One might conclude this new virus appears to impact the poor in a greater proportion, than the general population in America.
This is useful since the government has the deepest pockets and has shown a willingness to spend plenty of money, even when there are no statistical results in terms of change. It is smart business plan. The only thing they may need to show is how their plan will create spin off problems so they can spend even more, sort of like the template of the original war on poverty.
