Wirtschaftslage auf Humorvolle Art und Weise

Diese kommen von meinem geschätzten Freund J.C. Top Aktuell zu der momentanen Wirtschaftslage.

Short story to understand how it works

Once upon a time in a place overrun with monkeys, a man appeared and announced to the villagers that he would buy monkeys for $10 each.   The villagers, seeing that there were many monkeys around, went out to the forest, and started catching them.

The man bought thousands at $10 and as supply started to diminish, they became harder to catch, so the villagers stopped their effort.

The man then announced that he would now pay $20 for each one.

This renewed the efforts of the villagers and they started catching monkeys again.  But soon the supply diminished even further and they were ever harder to catch, so people started going back to their farms and forgot about monkey catching.

The man increased his price to $25 each and the supply of monkeys became so sparse that it was an effort to even see a monkey, much less catch one.

The man now announced that he would buy monkeys for $50!

However, since he had to go to the city on some business, his assistant would now buy on his behalf.

While the man was away the assistant told the villagers.
‚Look at all these monkeys in the big cage that the man has bought. I will sell them to you at $35 each and when the man returns from the city, you can sell them to him for $50 each.‘

The villagers rounded up all their savings and bought all the monkeys. They never saw the man nor his assistant again and once again there were monkeys everywhere.

Now you have a better understanding of how the stock market works.

Top Gear Worldwide


Unsere geliebte und einzigartige …œPetrolhead-Motor-Show… Top Gear* bekommt weltweite Ableger.


Top Gear Australia:



Top Gear America (oder doch nicht):





Ich bin aber überzeugt dass diese Ableger niemals an das Original herankommen werden, da die Show vor allem von den 2½ Moderatoren lebt. Allen voran Jeremy Clarkson (1), James …žCaptain Slow…œ May (1) und Richard Hammond (½). Ich glaube nicht dass Sie den Mythos des Stigs in Australien auch aufbauen können. Geht ja nicht…¦ Es kann nur einen Stig geben…¦ Mal schauen wie sich das entwickelt…¦

world wide survey

A world wide survey was conducted by the UN. The only question asked was:

„Would you please give your honest opinion about solutions to the ‚Food Shortage‘ in the rest of the world?“

The survey was a huge failure !!!

In Africa they didn’t know what ‚food‘ meant.

In India they didn’t know what ‚honest‘ meant.

In Europe they didn’t know what ’shortage‘ meant.

In China they didn’t know what ‚opinion‘ meant.

In the Middle East they didn’t know what ’solution‘ meant.

In South America they didn’t know what ‚please‘ meant.

And in the USA they didn’t know what ‚the rest of the world‘ meant!
