    The Way Business Works






    Dad: Son, I want you to marry the girl of my choice.

    Son: No

    Dad: The girl is Bill Gates' daughter.

    Son: Then ok.

    Dad then goes to Bill Gates.

    Dad: I want your daughter to marry my son.

    Bill Gates: No

    Dad: My son is the CEO of the World Bank.

    Bill Gates: Then ok.

    Dad goes to the President of the World Bank.

    Dad: Appoint my son as the CEO of your bank.

    President: No

    Dad: He is the son-in-law of Bill Gates.

    President: Then ok.

    Moral of the Story: This is how business works: speculation on what could be in terms of assets owned and value assessments based on what has not even come to pass.
