    Talking Economic Models - Explained by cows

    No offence is intended... just a bit of light hearted humour

    Economic Models Explained With Cows

    SOCIALISM
    You have 2 cows.
    You give one to your neighbour.

    COMMUNISM

    You have 2 cows.
    The State takes both and gives you some milk.

    FASCISM

    You have 2 cows.
    The State takes both and sells you some milk.

    NAZISM

    You have 2 cows.
    The State takes both and shoots you.

    BUREAUCRATISM

    You have 2 cows.
    The State takes both, shoots one, milks the other, and then throws the milk away...

    TRADITIONAL CAPITALISM

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

    SURREALISM

    You have two giraffes.
    The government requires you to take harmonica lessons

    AN AMERICAN CORPORATION

    You have two cows.
    You sell one, and force the other to produce the milk of four cows.
    Later, you hire a consultant to analyse why the cow has dropped dead.

    ENRON VENTURE CAPITALISM

    You have two cows.
    You sell three of them to your publicly listed company, using letters of credit opened by
    your brother-in-law at the bank, then execute a debt/equity swap with an associated
    general offer so that you get all four cows back, with a tax exemption for five cows.
    The milk rights of the six cows are transferred via an intermediary to a Cayman Island
    Company secretly owned by the majority shareholder who sells the rights to all seven
    cows back to your listed company. The annual report says the company owns eight cows,
    with an option on one more. You sell one cow to buy a new president of the United States,
    leaving you with nine cows. No balance sheet provided with the release. The public then
    buys your bull.

    A FRENCH CORPORATION

    You have two cows.
    You go on strike, organise a riot, and block the roads, because you want three cows.

    A JAPANESE CORPORATION

    You have two cows.
    You redesign them so they are one-tenth the size of an ordinary cow and produce twenty
    times the milk. You then create a clever cow cartoon image called 'Cowkimon' and market it worldwide.

    You stop counting cows and open another bottle of vodka.
