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