Why be an owner, when you can be a renter?

@ rmullen0

Seems to be the modern world. Look at other things like new car purchases etc - ever increasing numbers of PCP deals. The only thing that seems to be going to other way (a little) is mobile phones with fewer people getting their handset as part of their contract.

Plus, of course, the bean counters often prefer opex to capex spend.
