Some famous person once said that the bike is just too effcient and does not utilzed enough resources for the mass public to be satisfied.
I thought about it for a while and if you think about cars, interstates, roads, car taxes, tires, gas, licenses and how many people that employees it comes to a whole lot.
What is funny is you never really think about the millions of individuals that are employed at car companies and goverment positions. From 1 of my MBA classes the instructor said that each car now takes about 120 countries with specilized parts to make just 1 car. Resources from around the world are found created an assembled to make a car.
Now the Goverment LIVES off of taxes correct ??? So if we were to stop selling cars in nebraska federal an state taxes are around 7%. Additionally, we have car licenses, road taxes and such. All an all that is a ton of cash the state has to live without. What was even funnier was that here in nebraska people were driving less from the increase Gas prices. The state an other folks were not recieving enough money for their so Called Road Construction so they increased the price of gas tax to compensate for the Lack of driving here in nebraska.
Again remember how everything is forcasted with state and federal budgets. The only thing that most companies and state/goverments forecast is growth. Many see the Gross national Product, increase home sales, increase demand for power, water and other resources as POSITIVE growth ??
If this is correct then why would any Goverment/Companies want to put us back a step or 2 in lessing demand for products that they employe or actually make money at ??
Just food for thought about our Past and Present political views ??
