Appears daily Nasruddin on the market place and offers donkeys, well below the price that the wholesaler next to asks for.

He goes with him for the first few days because he thinks the little dealer will soon run out of breath.

But day after day Nasruddin appears, and day after day he undercuts the normal prices for donkeys quite a bit.

buy If the wholesaler gets too stupid, he goes with the price far below the cost price in order to end this ridiculous price war as quickly as possible. 

But it's no use.

Appears every day Nasruddin and submits the super price of the big one, and again tomorrow and the day after tomorrow and so on.

Finally, the big one can't take it anymore.

He invites Nasruddin to the café and talks to him.

"Listen," he said, "I want to be honest with you. I don't understand your strategy. I have a completely rationalized large farm, I also grow the feed for the animals that I breed myself. My 150 slaves were well and tightly organized.

I've been selling below cost for two weeks now, so I don't even have the contribution margin anymore. And you still stay below the price! How you do that?"

Nasruddin shrugged: "You know, it's really quite simple. You steal your slaves’ labor and I steal donkeys.”
