5. Is it really about helping people? Seriously?

 

Could it possibly be that standardizing the drinks into a smaller group of sizes will do more for the bottom line of the sugar peddlers and the manufacturers of the cups? Will the price decrease? Who will be the arbiter of this new small, medium, large(ish) standard? Why the drink companies of course. Mom and pop stores will have to buy new equipment for dispensing these new sizes and who do they pay?

Not buying the "help" the people gig.
