Thanks for your perceptive comment and bringing context on an international level! I was quite pleased with seeing small businesses, shops, and restaurants lining most of the streets of Kathmandu, it was refreshing to see as economies of scale in the US has reached such a point that large corporations and chains dominate our economic landscape and small businesses are now seemingly (to me) at an inherent disadvantage to compete. I truly do believe small businesses and entrepreneurs can be the driving force for development in communities and this phenomena is just kicking off in much of developing world which is very exciting and will change innumerable lives in the future. As for accounted and unaccounted costs of doing business, it's a cycle that's difficult to break.
