What is Economics?

Traditional Economics

You have two cows
You sell one and buy a bull
Your herd multiplies and the economy grows
You retire on the income

Indian Economics

You have two cows
You worship them

Pakistani Economics

You don’t have any cows
You claim that the Indian cows belong to you
You ask the US for financial aid, China for military aid, British for Warplane, Italy for machines, German for technology, French for submarines, Switzerland for loans, Russia for drugs and Japan for equipment
You buy the cows with all this and claim of exploitation by the world.

American Economics

You have two cows
You sell one and force the other to produce the milk of four cows
You profess surprise when the cows drops dead
You put the blame on some nation with cows and naturally that nation will be a danger to mankind
You wage a war to save the world and grab the cows

French Economics

You have two cows
You go on strike because you want three cows

German Economics

You have two cows
You reengineer them so that they live for 100 years, eat once and a month and milk themselves

British Economics

You have two cows
They are both mad cows

Italian Economics

You have two cows
You don’t know where they are
You break for lunch

Swiss Economics

You have 5000 cows, none of which belong to you
You charge others for storing them

Japanese Economics

You have two cows
You redesign them so that they are one tenth the size of an ordinary cow and produce twenty times the milk.
You then create cute cartoon cow images called Cowkimon and market worldwide

Russian Economics

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 17 cows
You give up counting and open another bottle of vodka

Chinese Economics

You have two cows
You have 300 people milking them
You claim full employment, high bovine productivity and arrest anyone reporting the actual numbers.

So then, How about Cambodian Economics? I can’t understand? If any one knows, Please give some ideas.
