Business and free enterprise are in deep trouble. The responsible business community must speak out now. A Sears precision wheel alignment means safer, surer, handling and steering. You'll enjoy longer treadwear. 10-point Brake job \ M lit th Ii mmvrrnan Suppose you are the owner of one of those giant 50,(NHI sq. ft. supermarkets. How much profit do you think you could make if you sold IO million dollars worth of groceries in a year? How about an auto agency? Suppose you owned a big one selling 4,(MMI new and used ears. How much profit could you expect to make? Let’s try a factory. Now you are the manufacturer of ball bearings, we’ll say, and your dollar output, at wholesale, is IO million. How much profit can you make? Here s one more. Now you’re the middle man, a distributor. You purchase electronic supplies from a manufacturer and resell them to retailers. Your dollar volume, again at wholesale, is IO million. How much profit can you make? Repeated surveys taken around America for decades reveal that industry is not getting its message across as the typical “man in the street” says the American businessman earns 28% profit on sales. IN FACT. THE AVERAGE NET PROFIT, AFTER TAXES, OF ALL AMERICAN BUSINESS FIRMS, YEAR IN AND YEAR OUT, IS ONLY 4%. But that’s average. You might have a heart attack if you owned that supermarket and were netting 9% net, as that industry is now averaging. That means that IF YOU SOLD IO MILLION DOLLARS IN GROCERIES YOUR NET PROFIT WOULD BE A minuscule: ts.immi oo. Auto agencies have earned approximately 1.5% net profit on sales for 15 years — that is those who survived have. Going back to 1949, over 50,IMM) auto dealers (including both new and used) have gone bankrupt. Maybe you might try a gas station (there are over 375,000 of (hem) or a restaurant (over 450,(MKI). The failure rate is astronomical and the profits low—-averaging, nationally, 1.5% to 2.0%. As I have said iii a column several months ago, there are just over five million business firms in .America of which WM),OOO go out of business annually. Of the 500,000 approximately 50,OOO go bankrupt anti the majority of the remaining firms are losing money and are either insolvent or are approaching insolvency. ON THE AVERAGE, EVERY BUSINESS FIRM IS REPLACED EVERY TEN YEARS. You might say the high failure rate of American business is an indictment of free enterprise. But that s not true. I he fault lies with people going into business who do not understand management, economics, accounting, psychology and marketing. Anyhow, what I am saying is that it takes a mighty strong heart to run a business firm because after ail the expenses lune been paid and Uncle Sam gets his share, there’s riot much left. I’m not complaining. PI) SOONER PAY UNCLE SAM, AND BE MY OWN MAN, THAN UVE UNDER COMMUNISM. SOCIALISM OR A WELFARE STATE OR ANY COMBINATION OE THOSE THREE.
