Economic Models explained with Cows - 2008 update



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.




AN AMERICAN CORPORATION (ENRON STYLE)

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..




A GERMAN CORPORATION

You have two cows.

You re-engineer them so they live for 100 years, eat once a month, and
milk themselves.




AN ITALIAN CORPORATION

You have two cows, but you don't know where they are.

The local Mafia is demanding protection money for the cows

You decide to have lunch.




A RUSSIAN CORPORATION

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 2 cows.

You stop counting cows and open another bottle of vodka.




A SWISS CORPORATION

You have 5000 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.

AN INDIAN CORPORATION

AN IRAQI CORPORATION

Everyone thinks you have lots of cows.

You tell them that you have none.

country

You still have no cows, but at least now you are part of 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.
