To be an Entrepreneur or to be an Employee - The Case of Steven Jones 1 - Steven Jones has a job as a pharmacist earning $30,000 per year, and he is deciding whether to take another job as the manager of another pharmacy for $40,000 per year or to purchase a pharmacy that generates revenue of $300,000 per year. To purchase the pharmacy, Steven would have to use his $20,000 savings and borrow another $80,000 at an interest rate of 10 percent per year. The pharmacy that Steven is contemplating purchasing has additional expenses of $80,000 for supplies, $40,000 for hired help, $10,000 for rent and $5000 for utilities. Assume that there is no depreciation and amortization expenses. Assume that income and business taxes are 40% and the repayment of the principal of the loan does not start before three years. Also assume that there is no inflation and there is no growth in revenues or expenses during the three years.
