A banker made the economists think this when [they] said:
“A cyclist is a disaster for the country’s economy:
[They don’t] buy cars and don’t borrow money to buy.
[They] don’t pay insurance policies.
Don’t buy fuel, don’t pay to have the car serviced, and no repairs needed.
[They don’t] use paid parking.
Doesn’t cause any major accidents. No need for multi-lane highways.
[They are] not getting obese.
Healthy people are not necessary or useful to the economy.
They are not buying the medicine. They don’t go to hospitals or doctors.
They add nothing to the country’s GDP.
On the contrary, each new McDonald’s store creates at least 30 jobs – actually 10 cardiologists, 10 dentists, 10 dietitians and nutritionists – obviously as well as the people who work in the store itself.”
Choose wisely: A Bike or a McDonald’s? It’s something to think about.

PS: walking is even worse. Pedestrians don’t even buy a bicycle!
Glad you read through
Think twice about how we live our lives today. Still, going to McDo0nalds?
