We can all thank urban and suburban dog owners for the role they and their pets play in job creation. Over the past decade or so, a small industry dedicated to the design, manufacture, distribution, marketing, installation and maintenance of pet waste stations has begun to flourish. In Paris, France, there is a small army of poop police dedicated to arresting dog owners who fail to clean up "canine ejections." In many cities around the U.S., a high tech solution uses DNA records of poop to track down offenders. Perhaps encouraging people to adopt more dogs is one solution to America's "job creation" problem!
