    Once upon a time a man appeared in a village 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,

    the villagers stopped their effort. He next announced that he would now

    buy monkeys at $20 each... This renewed the efforts of the villagers

    and they started catching monkeys again.

    Soon the supply diminished even further and people started going back

    to their farms. The offer increased to $25 each and the supply

    of monkeys became so scarce it was an effort to even find a

    monkey, let alone catch it!

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

    However,since he had to go to the city on some business, his assistant

    would buy on his behalf. In the absence of the man, the assistant

    told the villagers: "Look at all these monkeys in the big cage that

    the man has already collected. I will sell them to you at $35 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 for

    700 billion dollars.

    They never saw the man or his assistant again, only lots and lots of


    Now you have a better understanding of how the


    WILL WORK !!!!
