Take on Capitalism


Thanks to Ms. N for forwarding this. Now my choice of study makes so much more sense. 😛

My take on the Singapore System (similar to Swiss): You have about 7000 sheeps. None of them belong to you. You pay for them to be here. 

 

 

 

TRADITIONAL CAPITALISM:

You have two sheep.
You sell one and buy a ram.
Your flock multiplies, and the economy grows.
You sell them and retire on the income.

AN AUSTRALIAN CORPORATION: 

You have two sheep.
You sell one, and force the other to produce the wool of four sheep.
You are surprised when the sheep drops dead.

A FRENCH CORPORATION:

You have two sheep.
You go on strike because you want three sheep.

A JAPANESE CORPORATION:

You have two sheep.
You redesign them so they are one-tenth the size of an ordinary sheep
and produce 20 times the wool.
You then create clever sheep cartoon images called Sheepkimon and
market them worldwide.

A GERMAN CORPORATION:

You have two sheep.
You reengineer them so they live for 100 years, eat once a month, and
shear themselves.

A BRITISH CORPORATION:

You have two sheep.
Both die from foot and mouth.

AN ITALIAN CORPORATION:

You have two sheep, but you don’t know where they are.
You break for lunch.

A RUSSIAN CORPORATION:

You have two sheep.

You count them and learn you have five sheep.
You count them again and learn you have 42 sheep.
You count them again and learn you have 12 sheep.
You stop counting sheep and open another bottle of vodka.

A SWISS CORPORATION:

You have 5,000 sheep, none of which belong to you.
You charge others for storing them.

A CHINESE CORPORATION:

You have two sheep.
You have 300 people shearing them.
You claim full employment, high productivity, and arrest the newsman
who reported the numbers.

A NEW ZEALAND CORPORATION:

You have two sheep.
That one on the left is kinda cute…
