Money not advice

The Mullah Nasrudin, for a time, ran a large manufacturer of carts and was one of his country’s biggest employers.  For the past thirty years, the cart business had gotten tougher with foreign, lighter imports gradually eating into the domestic manufactuters’ share.  The mullah went to see the king to ask him for some money.

The king said, “Why do you need money?”

The Mullah replied, “I need money to pay my workers this month and keep them in their jobs.”

The king said, “If you don’t have enough money to pay your workers, how are you going to restructure your plant to compete with the foreign imports and keep them in their jobs next month?”

Nasrudin said, “I came here to get money not advice!”
