A few weeks ago, a friend made an off-handed remark about my personal favorite fast-food business, yes, I talk of the Late Great Ray Kroc's entrepreneurial project; McDonald's. You see, my acquaintance stated that he didn't really care for the company significantly. But, I like the business, and I'd like to share with you why. Therefore, why not relax and I would like to explain why it's this type of wonderful company.Well, Mickey D's has really worked hard to higher it self and contact the ultra-politically appropriate persons. I have met a few of the franchising division professionals through the years, they're really first-class 'A-rated' people, they really care. McDonald's is one hell of an organization, and they have done so many good stuff with their philanthropy around the world.Indeed, I told him that; you might want to rethink any animosity you might have towards the McDonald's Brand or the Corporation, I understand they are the whipping boy of the environmentalists, anti-obesity supporters, and vegans - but you had be surprised the lengths they go to obtain it right around the world in 165 places now.Besides Chevron, Microsoft, and Wal-Mart, I'd say McDonald's fantastic philanthropic endeavors are at the top of the top level and also rank above most NGOs and rock star coverage hounds who often talk at Davos and hob-knob with the President of the IMF, WHO, UN, World Bank, etc. McDonald's is really a class act, always supporting the community, always there for mankind. I can not say enough good stuff really.Speaking of the IMF and World Bank, and international banking and worldwide economics; do you realize that the Big Mac is recognized as the standard for judging the quality of life in a country, depending on hours worked, salaries, and the charge of the sandwich? It is true, but do you know why the Economists' Big Mac Index is such a big deal - because it has less change compared to the real currency of a land, it is firm, and could be assessed in all the places it's offered into.Did you know the Ronald McDonald Houses, which has existed over 4-decades now, assists parents keep nearby if their kids are terminally ill, and it is an incredible charity, it is a great thing, just a Great Corporation with that level of patient would do that. And exactly what a great business and great American Corporation it is. Besides that, they've great food, healthy food, and great coffee drinks today too. Indeed, I certainly hope you will please think over all of this.
