Too lazy to put that much effort into it for sure. It takes a lot of hard work to build a company like that.

Interesting stat.

Why the increase in cars?

Could be that two were now needed because both parents worked?

Could be that cars became more common due to productivity?


Hmn... you missed some of your quote up there, Wally...

Quote:

As the price of cars became more affordable and as international companies began competing with US companies, vehicle ownership underwent significant changes throughout the years. This trend has pointed toward increasing ownership. For example, in 1960, there was approximately 1 car owned for every 3 people in the population. By 1970, this statistic increased to 1 car for every 2 people. In the 1980’s and 1990’s, the statistic was a little more than 1 car for every 2 people. This dropped slightly in 2000 and 2008, when ownership statistics showed just fewer than 1 car for every two people.


And also:

Quote:

The Need For Personal Vehicles In The US

For individuals living in large metropolitan areas, having a personal vehicle is often not a necessity. Metropolitan life offers reliable public transportation, like commuter trains, subways, and buses. For those individuals living in rural areas, however, owning a personal vehicle becomes somewhat of a necessity. This reality is reflected in current vehicle ownership statistics. As of 2013, US Census estimates suggest that there were approximately 1.8 vehicles per household. Vehicle ownership in the US is higher than any place else in the world. Below is a look at some of the US states with the highest per capita vehicle ownership rates.


And then there's the rest of the article.


Owning a car outside of a city of necessary, or at least having access to a car. Just because a person has a car, doesn't mean they're doing 'well', either, financially. It also depends too on insurance, and Gods know that varies depending on the vehicle, the company and so many other factors it's insane. I just upgraded my vehicle and though my insurance didn't go up that much, I was told that insurance rates are going up/are up to almost the highest it was at a few years ago. AKA it's "bad", not as bad as it could be, but bad.


Having a car does not denote wealth.

One generational difference that doubled car ownership is that, in my parent's day, only one parent needed to go to work to sustain an household in a reasonable level of affluence. Both parents have to work now to pay the mortgage, keep their heads above water and they both likely need to drive to different places to do that.

If men get blamed for all the shit going on they will be the servants and the women will have the reins, again, Granny has always been the spine in any family, just ask grandpa who is the boss. It could be a good move, being deceptive about how/why it is happening takes some of the hope away that it will mean any change, maybe 'mom' will see everything as wanting to eat her young and kill everybody..

The Canadian Small Business Stats Everyone Should Know
MICHELLE MIRE


While every small business owner is acutely aware of the impact they’re making or attempting to make in their specific areas, few recognize the significant influence they have on the economy as a whole.

The Key Small Business Statistics from June 2016 prove it — small- and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) are the backbone of the Canadian economy.

This is one of the many reasons that the Business Development Bank (BDC) of Canada celebrates these accomplishments each October during BDC Small Business Week™.

Small Businesses are the Largest Private Sector Employers
Most private employers in Canada are actually small businesses. This is because most Canadian businesses are small businesses.

A total of 99.7% of all Canadian businesses are small- to medium-sized firms with less than 500 employees. (Small businesses are firms with less than 100 paid employees and medium-sized businesses are categorized as firms with 100 to 499 paid employees.)
9/10 Canadians in the private sector work for a small- to medium-sized business.
Micro-enterprises (firms with 1 to 4 employees) represent 54.1% of all private employers.
Small businesses employ 70.5% of the total private labor force or approximately 8.2 million people.
From 2005 to 2015, 87.7% of all new jobs (1.2 million jobs) were created by small businesses.
British Columbia (93.6%) and Saskatchewan (93.1%) are the provinces with the most people employed by small businesses.
Although Ontario (87.3%) and Alberta (91.2%) have the lowest percentages, small businesses are still the main employers in these provinces.
Small- to medium-sized businesses contribute to approximately 41% of Canada's gross domestic product (GDP).
Small Businesses Employ Workers in a Range of Industries
Small businesses are the corner store, family-owned restaurant or bed and breakfast. But, they are also commercial or residential trades, scientists and researchers, family physicians, dentists and more.

More than half of Canadian small businesses are concentrated in five industries — retail trade (12.5%), construction (12.2%), professional, scientific and technical services (12%), other services (9.6%) and health care and social assistance (9.2%).
The industries with the most employees working for small businesses are wholesale and retail (1.96 million), accomodation and food services (1.01 million), manufacturing (0.81 million) and construction (0.76 million).
Together, these four industries account for 55.6% of all small business jobs.
When you include medium-sized businesses in the mix, small- and medium-sized businesses account for more than 90% of the employment agriculture (98.8%), other services (98.6%), accommodation and food services (98%), wholesale and retail trade (97.1%), construction (96 %), business, building and other support services (93.4%) and professional, scientific and technical services (90.7%).

In all industries, nearly 70% of the Canadian workforce is employed by small- and medium-sized businesses

Cliff, I don't think you know what a Corporation is.

Cliff, I don't think you know what a Corporation is.

He knows positively that corporations are dishonest and corrupt and should be taxed out of existence .He also believes there are too many people in the world and us pesky producers should just die off and let him live in peace .

Even the hundreds of thousands of 1 man Corporations in Canada? They keep every penny for themselves.

Who will auger the drain next time Cliff plugs the toilet? Who will sell him his food? Who will dispense his meds? Who will sell him gas and 2 stroke oil for his scooter? Who will sell him tools and materials? Who will sell him hydroponic supplies?

99.99999% of local mom and pop businesses are Corporations. It's crazy not to incorporate.
