Barkerville

Would you have preferred to mine or to operate a business that supported the miners, if you had been an inhabitant of Barkerville during its gold rush?

I would have chosen to operate my own business to support the miners. By choosing to run my own business, I could help and gather a lot of miner, and provide them with good money and make sure the working conditions are clean. I would do my best to help them with their work. My business would also make a lot of money. I wouldn’t have preferred to mine, because that wouldn’t really get me anywhere, I would probably have trouble looking for gold and could lost out on some money. I wouldn’t want to live off of what I find while mining.

Have i got it right? Why else choose business?
