Seeing the heading , you would have thought that I have extracted a write up of a person holding a PhD in Economics or Business Management. Nope it’s not. Sorry if I disappointed you.
Today we see philosophers in the market-place carrying their heads in baskets, and crying aloud, “Wisdom! Wisdom for Sale “. Buy one get one free !!!!
Poor philosophers! They sell their heads to feed their hearts.
Said a philosopher to a street sweeper, “I pity you. Yours is a hard and dirty task.”
And the street sweeper said, “Thank you Sir. But tell me what is your task?”
And the philosopher answered saying, “I study man’s mind, his deeds and his desires.”
Then the street sweeper went on with his sweeping and said with a smile, “I pity you too.”
One day a tourist comes to the only hotel in a debt ridden town. Lays a $100 note on the table & goes to inspect the rooms.
Hotel owner takes the note & rushes to pay his debt to the butcher.
Butcher runs to pay the cattle farmer. Cattle farmer runs to pay the feed supplier.
Feed supplier runs to pay the prostitute, who in these hard times gave her services on credit.
Prostitute then runs to pay off her debt to the hotel owner for the rooms she rented for her clients.
Hotel owner then lays the $100 note back on the counter.
The tourist comes down, takes his money & leaves as he did not like the rooms.
No one earned anything. But the town is now without debt & looks to the future with a lot of optimism. Isn’t this how the world is doing business today ?
