Victims of victims

One day there's a farmer, a scientist, and an artist.
The farmer sells his products for 10,000 per portion, scientists tutors for 10,000, and the artist sells his services for 10,000.
One day the scientists discovered how to increase the farmer's productivity twofolds.
The farmer was so happy he now could sell his products for cheaper, 7000 per portion.
Many people came to the farmer to trade, and the farmer grew richer and richer.

The artist took his food from the farmer and enjoyed the reduction of price as well. But artists being artists, he rarely find people who appreciates his work even though his work is all about facilitating bringing people together and made it easer for them to work together in harmony. Arts are very valuable.
So seeing this reality, the artist thought "the farmer is rich" and everytime the farmer went to ask for the artist' services, the artist rose his price. Now the farmer has to pay 15,000 for the artist's services, even though he had lowered his price of food.
The scientist, well he just looked at them shaking his head.

There was a lot of dissapointment in the air, but being a patient person, the scientist didn't start any riot or whatsoever. Thank God.

Money Market and the Swap Market

One day there's a family of bear went loose on a village.
They chased away the villages.
The Papa bear is known to like honey
And the Mama bear is known to like fish.

One bear went back into the forest but the other one was set
To create havoc in another village. No one knows which.
So a beekeeper called his brother a fisherman
Give me some of your fish for me to do with Papa Bear later
And I'll give you some of my honey if it were the Mama Bear

Turned out to be the Papa Bear, and it came to the brother's house
The brother use the honey to keep Papa Bear busy,
And he netted the Bear, tied it, and put it on a cage.
Other people was joyful, and give lots of rewards to the brother.

The brother shared some of the rewards to his brother the beekeeper.

But we know that's not what happened in the money market and swap market.
No one gives anything to the other party.
In my opinion there are lots of services have not been rewarded since the money and the swap market.
