Just copied this off of Farcebook.  I can't vouch for its accuracy, but it was off the intranetz so it must be true, right?
 
"The bicycle is the slow death of the planet.
General Director of Euro Exim Bank Ltd. got economists thinking when he said:
"A cyclist is a disaster for the country's economy: he does not buy cars and does not borrow money to buy. He does not pay for insurance policies. He does not buy fuel, does not pay for the necessary maintenance and repairs. He does not use paid parking. He does not cause serious accidents. He does not require multi-lane highways. He does not get fat.
Healthy people are neither needed nor useful for the economy. They don't buy medicine. They do not go to hospitals or doctors. Nothing is added to the country's GDP (gross domestic product).
On the contrary, every new McDonald's restaurant creates at least 30 jobs: 10 cardiologists, 10 dentists, 10 dietary experts and nutritionists, and obviously, people who work at the restaurant itself."
Choose carefully: cyclist or McDonald's? It is worth considering.
P.S. Walking is even worse. Pedestrians don't even buy bicycles."
Sounds like our economy is built on a good deal of ****, huh.

    Well...technically they're not wrong.

    Bet that person also wrote the piece that talks about how our economy would collapse if US citizens saved as much money in the bank each year as do peeps in most other nations.
    Why it would be disaster, absolute disaster if people stopped buying crap every day that they don't really need. Capitalism requires we spend all our money for the good of those most in need - the 1%-ers.
