Ecownomics

An old one, but a good one nonetheless. Economics made easy, with cows.

SOCIALISM: You have two cows. The State takes one and gives it to your neighbour.

COMMUNISM: You have two cows. The State takes both and gives you and your neighbour some of the milk.

FASCISM: You have two cows. The State takes both and sells you and your neighbour some of the milk.

BUREAUCRACY: You have two cows. The State takes both, shoots one, milks the other, and then throws the milk away.

CAPITALISM: You have two cows. You sell one and buy a bull. Your cow has calves. The State takes one of the calves and gives it to your neighbour.

LIBERTARIANISM: You have two cows. What you do or don’t do with your cows is your own damn business.
