Hawkin: Sure, spending has much to do with it but large corps can and will hire because their economic moat is so much larger than a company with 45 staff that wants to grow to 55.Our experiences may vary, but AFAIK small businesses which grow quickly do so first through the use of part-time employees who get little/no benefits. It isn't until after the business has proven itself over time that the people are made permanent. And, if you think about it, some of the most important numbers in a business are unknown and unknowable. The store that you're unhappy with will never know how many people you've told about it and kept away from them. The same goes for the the store you're happy with. That list could go on and on....Anyone who wants to run a business and insists on "certainty" best stay in bed. Handling the uncertainties in business is one of the fundamental jobs of management.
