(Some words might be wrong, I translated it)

COMMUNISM: You have 2 cows, the government takes both and gives you some milk.

FASCISM: You have 2 cows, the government takes both and sells you some milk.

NAZISM: You have 2 cows, the government takes them and kills you.

BUREAUCRACY: You have 2 cows, the government takes both, kills one, milks the other and throws away the milk.

TRADITIONAL CAPITALISM: You have 2 cows, you sell one, buy a bull, multiply the herd and economy develops smoothly. Afterwards you sell the whole herd, you become an incomer and you live better.

AMERICAN ECONOMY: You have 2 cows, you sell one and you force the other to produce as much milk as 4 cows. Later you hire someone to explain to you why the cow is dead.

FRENCH ECONOMY: You have 2 cows and you go on a strike because you want 3.

JAPANESE ECONOMY: You have 2 cows and you redesign them so they are 1/10 in size and procuce as much milk as 20 normal cows. Then you design a cartoon, you name it COWKEMON and you sell it to the entire world.

GERMAN ECONOMY: You have 2 cows amd you redesign them so that they live 100 years, eat once a month and milk themelves.

ITALIAN ECONOMY: You have 2 cows but you don't know where they are, so you go on a break to eat.

RUSSIAN ECONOMY: You have 2 cows, you count them and you find out that you actually have 5. You count them again and you find out that you have 42. The third time you find out that you have 2 again. Then you stop counting and open one more bottle of vodka.

CHINESE ECONOMY: You have 2 cows, 300 people to milk them, you claim that you offer full employment and high production and you arrest the journalist who makes these numbers public.

GREEK ECONOMY: You have 2 cows, you sell them for any price, with the few money that you got you pay in advance to buy a car, which you pay off in 7.083 instalments.

INDIAN (in India) ECONOMY: You have 2 cows and you just love them (they're a holy animal in India).

BRITISH ECONOMY: You have 2 cows and they're both mad.
