Economics and Health Hazards!

Sanjay Thakrar, CEO at Euro Axim Bank Ltd got economists thinking when he said :

A cyclist is a disaster for the country's economy


- He does not buy the car & does not take car loan
- Does not buy car insurance
- Does not buy Fuel
- Does not send his car for servicing & repairs
- Does not use paid Parking
- Does not become Obese

- Yes,.....and well, damn it !!  Healthy people are not needed for economy. They do not buy drugs. They do not go to Hospitals & Doctors.

They add nothing to country's GDP.

On the contrary, every new McDonald outlet creates at least 30 jobs - 10 Cardiologists, 10 Dentists, 10 weight loss experts apart from people working in McDonald outlet.

So,  Mr. Economist who do you want?
A Cyclist or a McDonald ?

Worth pondering
