Theorists, what is McDonald's selling? The answer seems obvious - fast food! Most of us have partaken in their Big Mac burgers, fries, and other staples of the golden arches. Yet, that may be a big ol' LIE! That's right, Ronald McDonald may not be a clown selling some of our favorite indulgent quick serve foods. In fact, McDonald's may be in a completely different business all together. What is that business? You'll have to watch to find out!

    How is working at McDonald's like being an archaeologist in Athens? You end up smelling like ancient grease.

    Except a whole lot of that "real estate rent" comes from people selling food under contract by McD's, so it's a bit of a mischaracterization, even if the the parent corporation manages to shield itself from situations where individual restaurants would be unprofitable and pushes that loss onto the franchisee instead.

    With stable enough cash flow, we get mortgage and buy a house, get a car with down payment. Basically, Companies are doing same thing. For McDonald money from food(+etc) is the stable enough cash flow, I guess.

    8:38 your math is wrong , on the first year you ended up with -50k , and then on your second year that -50k just vanished , if you add that -50k on your second year as you should have done , you end up with no difference at all .

    Take a second and think about how the government (any government, not just US) acquired all the country's land, and how they're able to maintain ownership of it all in order to sell it off to people. (Hint: it's an 8-letter word that starts with a "v") Then take another couple seconds and ask yourself whether or not a rich person should be allowed to use their money to purchase as much land as they are able, not live on it, never even see it, and charge someone else to live on it-and continue charging them forever, regardless of how much you've paid them in total over the years. My "landlord" (btw, shouldn't the word 'lord' raise some red flags?) is a big company that owns a bunch of different properties, including this dilapidated little fourplex I live in. I've never actually met or seen any of the people who own the place I live, and their sparse communications with me make it clear that they have no real, current knowledge of this particular property; we're just one of many. Yet I pay these unknown, uninvolved people a large portion of my income every month, and they could send me an email tomorrow saying they've sold the land to someone else who is going to demolish the building and erect higher-cost apartments or a restaurant or build nothing at all and just hold the land as an investment to sell off when it appreciates enough in value. This bizarre and obviously unfair arrangement is one of the greatest tools (or should I say 'weapons') used to maintain and expand division between the 1% and the rest of us. Private ownership of land must be abolished if we're ever going to achieve a more fair and equitable society.

    @9:07 Um....not $42,000 paid in taxes. Year one you can only deduct $50,000 of the $100,000 then you carry the remaining $50,000 to the next year, thus years 1 & 2 show $0 profit and your taxes paid over that 5 year period would total $31,500....which is somehow the same as your second scenario, $31,500. You can't take deductions to less than $0. When you have taken all the deduction that you are allowed, the balance carries forward.

    Local places are usually a bit more expensive, but in my experience, the flavor and portions are usually worth it anyway. Besides, if I can't afford to eat out at the prices set by local places, my guess is I shouldn't really be eating out in the first place, and opt to make something cheaper at home.
