Bicycle is the slow Death of the Planet

07 Aug

“Bicycle is the slow death of the planet.”

“A banker made the economists think this when he said:

“A cyclist is a disaster for the country’s economy: he doesn’t buy cars and doesn’t borrow money to buy. He doesn’t pay insurance policies. Don’t buy fuel, don’t pay to have the car serviced, and no repairs are needed. He doesn’t use paid parking. Doesn’t cause any major accidents. No need for multi-lane highways.

He is 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!”
