I had my client laughing out load yesterday. He asked me what I thought about the economic crisis in Greece and the 60 Billion Euro potential bailout by the EU. I replied that I thought it was a fair sum for 5000 years of unpaid intellectual property royalties to Greece for founding Western civilization. 🙂
The Italians should get something similar, although not quite as much given that the Romans copied much of their empire from the Greeks.
The Spaniards and Portuguese….maybe two Twinkies and a Coke…(just kidding, yikes!).
The Chinese on the other hand (not like they’ll ever need it, they own all of us by now)…..as Chico Marx once said, “You couldn’t afford it!”.
