AN AMERICAN CORPORATION
You have two cows. All you see is burgermeat and self satisfaction.
You sell one, and force the other to produce the milk of four cows.
Later, you hire a consultant, and then an analyst to understand why the cow has dropped dead. You then draft in two private doctors mainstream bereavement counsellors. A Tibetan self-styled Guru. You join the Bahai faith and spent a fortune on a feng shui and yoga lessons so you can compete against the fittest. You go to a party where you are introduced to cocaine and are forced to sell your house to feed your habit. You wonder why you have no money, huge debt and mental health problems.
When your own family sees you near death they just walk by and say “Told you so..” No amount of rehab will stop you being American, because if you won’t stop causing war and wasting the planets resources the world will turn their back on you and you will become a 3rd world country.
A GREEK CORPORATION
You have two cows. You borrow lots of euros to build barns, milking sheds, hay stores, feed sheds, dairies, cold stores, abattoir, cheese unit and packing sheds. You have to sell your cows to pay for them. 27 countries give you money to buy 2 more cows that are presently in a field of dust looking like skin and bone and forced to milk each other.
These days your cows … don’t have anything but a beleaguered fishing industry to feed a huge nation and 400 islands in the Aegean. Tourism is the only industry also dogged by recession because the euro has made your ice cold beer and package deal holidays too expensive. The cows slept in too late, drank too much ouzo, spent all its money in the afternoon playing dominoes in a Taverna, and got financial mastitis. Now they need all the other countries to give Greece their last cow to give Greece one more chance. A further £152 billion so they can push the boat out only to sink it after 2 previous bail outs and take Italy Portugal and Spain down with them followed by the rest of us.

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 have 2 billion people milking them.

The US owe you $15 trillion in perspective, the US national debt is larger than the total economies of China, the United Kingdom … and under current policies.

A EUROZONE CORPORATION
27 countries each have 2 cows they have not planned for and don’t want to look after, or even afford, except Germany whose cows are healthy, because it was the Germans who plunged us all into debt crisis because they contravened the rules that had been laid down for the single currency in the Maastricht Treaty.
It was called the ‘Stability and Growth Pact’, and it was not Italy or Greece that torpedoed it – it was Germany.
In 2003 Germany overspent, and its budget deficits had exceeded the 3% of GDP limit to which they were legally bound. The Euro commission let them off a huge fine giving them a headstart to overtake its partners ..but nobody likes a dirty old cow that cheats on you, do they?

Business seems pretty good.

A NEW ZEALAND CORPORATION
You have two cows and sheep.
The sheep are more attractive than cows with the way they wiggle and the steaming allure in their eyes and the way that lovely soft wool rises seductively up there neck.
You have 2 cows. One died from financial embarrassment in 2008. The other died later choking on volcanic dust.
Your 2 cows got fat in the housing boom of yesteryear and all you have to show for it now is the fact you both look like a couple of pints of Guinness you can’t afford at 8 euros a pint.
