Once upon a time in a village a man appeared who announced to the
villagers that he would buy monkeys for Rs. 10. The villagers seeing
that there were many monkeys went out in the forest and started
catching them. The man bought thousands at 10 and as supply started
to diminish and villagers started to stop their effort he announced
that now he would buy at 20 rupees.
This renewed the efforts of the villagers and they started catching
moneys again. Soon the supply diminished even further and people
started going back to their farms. The offer rate increased to 25
and the supply of monkeys became so that it was an effort to even
see a monkey let alone catch it.
The man now announced that he would buy monkeys at 50! However,
since he had to go to the city on some business his assistant would
now buy on behalf of the man. In the absence of the man, the
assistant told the villagers. Look at all these monkeys in the big
cage that the man has collected. I will sell them to you at 35 and
when the man comes back you can sell it to him for 50. The villagers
queued up with all their saving to buy the monkeys.
Then they never sawthe man nor his assistant, only monkeys everywhere! EZrent.com
