You sell one, and force the other to produce the milk of four cows.
Later, you hire a consultant to analyse why your cow has dropped dead.


ENRON VENTURE CAPITALISM
You have two cows.
You sell three of them to your publicly listed company, using letters of
credit opened by your brother-in-law at the bank, then execute a
debt/equity swap with an associated general offer so that you get
four cows back, with a tax exemption for five cows.
The milk rights for six cows are transferred via an intermediary to a
Cayman Island company secretly owned by the majority shareholder who
sells the rights to seven cows back to your listed company.
The annual report says the company owns eight cows, with an option on
one more.
You sell one cow to buy a new President of the United States, leaving
you with ten cows.
No balance sheet is provided with the release.
The public then buys your bull.

You have two cows.
You go on strike, organise a riot, and block the roads because you want
three cows.

You redesign them so they are one-tenth the size of an ordinary cow but
produce twenty times the milk.
You then create a clever cow cartoon image called 'Cowkimon' and market
it worldwide.

What about the Lehman brothers way

You have two cows
you package these cows with rats in order to buy more cows, and hopefully more milk.
most of those cows are mismanaged and die, you realise people dont drink rat milk
you still have 50 aaa rated cows on your balance sheet????
so people let you borrow more cows
Nobody knows how many cows you have but you sure aint producing much milk.
