An upgrade:

The world economy explained with two 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.

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.

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.

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 died.

A FRENCH CORPORATION

You have two cows.

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

AN ITALIAN CORPORATION

You have two cows, but you do not know where they are.

You decide to have lunch.

A SWISS CORPORATION

You have 5,000 cows. None of them belong to you.

You charge the owners for storing them.

A CHINESE CORPORATION

You have two cows.

You have 300 people milking them.

You claim that you have full employment and high bovine productivity.

You arrest the newsman who reported the real situation.

AN INDIAN CORPORATION

You have two cows.

You worship them.

A BRITISH CORPORATION

You have two cows.

Both are mad.

AN IRAQI CORPORATION

Everyone thinks you have lots of cows.

You tell them that you have none.

Nobody believes you, so they bomb the crap out of you and invade your country.

You still have no cows but at least you are now a Democracy.

AN AUSTRALIAN CORPORATION

You have two cows.

Business seems pretty good.

You close the office and go for a few beers to celebrate.

A NEW ZEALAND CORPORATION

You have two cows.

The one on the left looks very attractive.

A GREEK CORPORATION

You have two cows borrowed from French and German banks.

You eat both of them.

The banks call to collect their milk, but you cannot deliver so you call the IMF.

The IMF loans you two cows.

You eat both of them.

The banks and the IMF call to collect their cows/milk.

You are out getting a haircut.


AN IRISH CORPORATION

You have two cows.

One of them's a horse.

Well actually My country is heading the Greece way too if we dont do something. So many financial scandals. The currency just dropped by 25% against the USD. At least Greece has the euro, for now at least hehe.

Don't knock it, THE most bankrupt country is the US, but they keep printing money to mask it, showing a false picture of the economy. I don't know how long this can last without bursting but it can't go on forever... :roll: Printing more money is not allowed in the EU, outside the control of the Central Bank. If Greece could print money like the US -and fool others its worth its face value- oh yeah, we'd be in great shape!!

Well JK the USD is not the same as the any currency that smaller countries have be it the drachma or Malaysian Ringgit. As Paul Krugman said “Fiat money, if you like, is backed by men with guns.”. How big are your guns?

Smaller countries can print as much money as they like. They will never be able to convice others the value of their printed currency. It only means that when they buy a hamburger, they'll have to bring suite case of their currency.

Malaysian ringgit was at 3:1 against the USD just a short while ago, its now 3.8:1 . Imagine the common folks have to go through. That is what happens when @$$holes run the country. They usually run it to the ground.

Well im going to pickup my 156 3.0 and have to start hitting all 24 lifters to put yer cams in he in hot and sunny Malaysia.

'Men with guns' is right. Iraq and Libya are good examples... They planned to drop USD, deal oil in Euro and see what happened! I believe though that the giant US bubble is bound to go booooom someday in our lifetime.... Boy it will be interesting! What with the Yuan economy, trade deficits etc...
Btw, one set 24v cams will be ready Friday morning. It will probably ship to Bucharest, Romania. I'm expecting their cams (exchange cores). Next set will be ready early September as the cam/hardening shops close for a few weeks.
