Global Economics - Generalisations & Hidden Truths

Learning While You Laugh

I am sure some of you have heard about this Heaven and Hell scenario on global economics. Sure, we will laugh, but look deeper and there is an element of truth behind each humourous stab.

HEAVEN is when you have:

An American salary
A British home
Chinese food
A Swiss economy
An Italian body
Japanese technology
An African "tool"
An Indian wife

HELL is when you have:

An American wife
A British body
A Chinese "tool"
Swiss food
Italian technology
A Japanese home
An African economy
An Indian salary

In a rapidly changing global economy, even jokes have to be refreshed every now and then. Things like "British body" and "Indian salary" may not be so funny very soon.
