After Congress failed to pass a 10 cent tax on sugary drinks such as soda, New York City united behind Mayor Mike Bloomberg and Gov. David Patterson is now trying to implement a sugary drink ban in New York City for all food stamp recipients. Patterson and Bloomberg contend that all of the public spending on healthcare and the links to diabetes and other diseases justifies the government ban.

Opponents of the measure say that this is just another nanny-state solution by New York, and that this is another case of class warfare, with the less fortunate being targeted.

Watch The Mangru Report Panel of Experts composed of John Browne (Euro-Pacific Capital), Paschal Liguori (Premier Estate Properties), and Florida House of Representatives Majority Leader Adam Hasner debate both sides of the issue and look at the real costs at hand.

As Congress continues to debate a new bill to implement healthy school lunches across the country (HR 5504, Improving Nutrition for America’s Children Act), The Mangru Report panel of experts composed of John Browne (Euro-Pacific Capital), Anthony Pulieri (United Bullion Group), and Jim Knight (The Knight Group) discusses the merits of the bill and whether this is solving an epidemic problem or just more government spending.

The panel also weighs whether the healthy school lunches should be income based as opposed to being distributed to all students, whether food stamps should be cut to pay for it, whether physical fitness programs should accompany the healthy lunches, and whether the government should be intruding further into our lives.

While most people in America have been focusing on an upcoming General Motors (GM) IPO that was supposed to be some $70 billion dollars, it seems that Brazil has beat us to the punch. Recently, state-run Brazilian oil giant Petrobras (NYSE: PBR) raised some $70-75 billion in a secondary stock offering that was completed late September to finance the company’s growth and expansion, in particular new offshore deposits of oil found off the coast of Brazil.

Watch Dan Mangru and the Mangru Report Panel of Experts composed of John Browne (Euro-Pacific Capital), Anthony Pulieri (United Bullion Group), and Michael Solomon (Author, Where Did My America Go?) discuss whether the $75 billion was a good bet on Petrobras, whether the incoming Brazilian government will take Petrobras in a more socialist direction, and how the U.S. is invested in offshore oil in Brazil but not in America.
