Do you want fries with that small country?

I have never had too much interest in our dear fast food chums McDonald’s but their recent Twitter cock-up sparked my interest and I discovered some scary facts that I never knew before thanks to the Business Insider website. Click here to read the full list.

But the ones that really scared me were;

McDonald’s serves 1% of the world’s population every day and sells more than 75 hamburgers every second

McDonald’s’ $24 billion in revenue makes it the 90th-largest economy in the world. But counting $32 billion in revenue from franchise stores, McDonald’s claims the 68th biggest economy, bigger than Ecuador.

They have way too much power I reckon! But having said that so do far too many corporations.

I've been on the planet for a more than half a century and I've lost all my hair but not my enthusiasm for life, my wife, reading and music! I started my first blog; With Just A Hint Of Mayhem in February 2009. In May 2011 I began two sister blogs to that first one; With Just A Hint Of Amelia and With Just A Hint Of Learning. A while later I also added the more random Stars In My Glasses to the family :-) Feel free to check them all out and let me know what you think!
