Different cultures, different corporations?

French corporation

– You have 2 cows. You go on strike because you want 3

cows.

German corporation

– You have 2 cows. You reengineer them so they live for

100 years, eat once a month, and milk themselves.

Italian corporation

– You have 2 cows, but you don’t know where they

are…..You break for lunch.

Dutch corporation

– You have 2 cows. You expand your business with the

help of a cooperative bank till you have 100 cows. You

wait till the EU subsidizes you to stop farming by paying

your debts to the bank. You sell the milk rights and

enjoy a lavish pension ever after…..
