World Economics

Postby Messenger of Allah » Fri May 26, 2006 1:09 pm

MOA did not write the following economic theory. He only received it as an e-mail from an unknown writer, and is now passing it on to the rest of the world.

I wonder who actually wrote it. Was it Allah? Probably not. He’s usually very direct with me.

Anyway, here it is:



TRADITIONAL ECONOMICS:

You have two cows.
You sell one and buy a bull.
Your herd multiplies and the economy grows.
You retire on the income.



Now see how different countries’ economies work:

INDIAN ECONOMICS

You have two cows.
You worship them.

PAKISTANI ECONOMICS

You don't have any cows.
You claim that the Indian cows belong to you.
You ask the US for financial aid, China for military aid, Britain for warplanes, Italy for machines, Germany for technology, France for submarines, Switzerland for loans, Russia for drugs and Japan for equipment. You buy the cows with all this and then complain of exploitation by the world.

AMERICAN ECONOMICS

You have two cows.
You sell one and force the other to produce the milk of four cows.
You profess surprise when the cow drops dead.
You put the blame on some nation with cows and naturally that nation will be a danger to mankind.
You wage a war to save the world and grab the cows.

FRENCH ECONOMICS

You have two cows.
You reengineer them so that they live for 100 years, eat once a month and milk themselves.

BRITISH ECONOMICS

You have two cows.
They are both mad cows.

ITALIAN ECONOMICS

You have two cows.
You don't know where they are.
You break for lunch.

SWISS ECONOMICS

You have 5000 cows, none of which belong to you.
You charge others for storing them.

JAPANESE ECONOMICS

You have two cows.
You redesign them so that they are one tenth the size of an ordinary cow and produce twenty times the milk.
You then create cute cartoon cow images called Cow-Kimon and market them worldwide.

RUSSIAN ECONOMICS

You have two cows.
You count them and learn you have five cows.
You count them again and learn you have 42 cows.
You count them again and learn you have 17 cows.
You give up counting and open another bottle of vodka.

CHINESE ECONOMICS

You have two cows.
You have 300 people milking them.
You claim full employment, high bovine productivity and arrest anyone reporting the actual numbers.

AND FINALLY:

IRANIAN ECONOMICS

You have two cows.
You don't know economics.
You choose one of them as the leader of your country and the other one as the president.
Don't shoot the messenger if you don't like the message
