The following was written as a part of an application for a small business loan by a group of developers in the city of Monroe.
"A jazz music club in Monroe would be a tremendously profitable enterprise. Currently, the nearest jazz club is 65 miles away(1); thus, our proposed club, the C Note, would have the local market all to itself(3,7). Plus, jazz is extremely popular in Monroe: over 100,000 people attended Monroe's jazz festival last summer, several well-known jazz musicians live in Monroe(4), and the highest-rated radio program in Monroe is 'Jazz Nightly,' which airs every weeknight(2). Finally, a nationwide study indicates that the typical jazz fan spends close to $1,000 per year on jazz entertainment(5,6). It is clear that the C Note cannot help but make money."
（1）If the demand for a live jazz club in Monroe were as great as the applicant claims, it seems that Monroe would already have one or more such clubs.
（2）The popularity of Monroe's annual jazz festival and of its nightly jazz radio show does not necessarily indicate that jazz is extremely popular in Monroe.
（3）Granted that jazz is extremely popular in Monroe, we cannot ensure that those jazz fans will attend the jazz club.
（4）The mere fact that several well-known jazz musicians live in Monroe lend no significant support to the applicant's claim.
（5）The result of the nationwide study could not ensure that Monroe residents are willing to spend much money on jazz entertainment.
（6）The arguer also does not inform us how much of the $1000 goes to club admission.
（7）The scale of Monroe's jazz market and the profitability of the proposed club are open to doubt.
