The key to sucess, is doing what you like, and living within your means. Something "sucking" is a matter of perspective.


Failure rate of small business means very little. That is like a failure rate on a test. It just tells you that a lot failed. Not that the lot studied. Or, in this example, thought of and ran a good business. 

 

A government job is where it's at. Pension, job security, benefits, etc. 


My thoughts jumped to politician when you said government job, so I decided to troll it, but yes, you're right.

 

Small businesses failing though is a little bit more of an indication of risk similar to how many people failed a test. I think it applies. Restaurants in particular are notorious for having a high failure rate.


Restaurants only survive if they fill a demand. A new pizza place is less likely to live than a city's first Chinese food restaurant.


I beg to differ. Pizza > Chinese Food. That was a horrible example, now carry on with your debate.


No it was a good one. You like pizza more, thats fine. But thats an opinion. If a city is dominated by pizza places, and suddenly a decent Chinese restaurant comes in, it is almost guaranteed to survive... especially if it's americanized, which is what most of it is.


Exactly. And Rengle assumes that people do not buy both. I do not want pizza every night. I would love to change it up. And Chinese food fills that void.

 

(Sadly, I cannot eat pizza...Chinese food fills that void enough)

I'll choose Chinese food over pizza any day. Actually, I choose most Asian foods over pizza.

I love sushi. And rice. And spring rolls. *begins to drool*

Don't make me change this into an argument about how pizza is the god of all food and that the majority of people prefer pizza to chinese food. Because I will, and it will be the only forum debate I will ever win. Don't taunt me bro.

Even after my month-long chicken and rice diet, I cannot get enough rice. Especially Jasmine rice. Yummm

Lol, go forth young rengle, and show us the  statistics on a completely obscure comparison. And even if by some act of God you prove your point, It doesn't effect the analogy.

But that is not my point. Regardless of the fact people like pizza more on average, people will not only eat pizza. People like variation in their meals. And Chinese food offers that. And opening a pizza place in a city full of them is not good unless you have a nice gimmick. The market is split between a ton of restaurants whereas the market for Chinese food is held by one restaurant. Who will survive?

First off, people COULD eat only pizza. There's no law against it and it is scientifically possible.

 

Secondly, if there is a single pizza place in a town full of chinese food, do you not think that people who are absolutely sick of chinese food will swap to pizza, as well as some people who just want a combination of both? If you open a pizza restraunt in a town full of chinese restraunts, the pizza restraunt is likely to do some of the other chinese restraunts out of business as a result of being something new and refreshing. Don't tell me you wouldn't give that pizza place a try if you lived there your whole life and rarely ever have anything other than chinese. You would at least try it once, and if you liked it, you would keep coming back.
