Sanjay Thakrar, CEO at Euro Exim Bank Ltd got economics thinking when he said:
A Cyclist is a disaster for a country’s economy. They do not buy cars, or take a car loan. They do not buy car insurance or fuel. They do not send their car for servicing and repairs. Do not pay for parking, or pay road tax. They do not become obese
Yes… and well, damn it!! Healthy people are not needed for an economy. They do not buy drugs. They do not go to hospitals and doctors. They add nothing to a country’s GDP.
On the contrary every new McDonalds outlet creates at least 30 jobs, 10 cardiologists, 10 dentists,, 10 weight loss experts apart from people working in McDonalds outlets.
Choose wisely. A cycle or a McDonalds? Worth Thinking.
Walking is even worse. Those people do not even buy a bicycle
