Let’s say there are 50 of us locked in a room and we are all hungry.
In the corner of the room there is a barrel of 100 apples.
The apples cost £5 each.
There’s a problem. We pool all our money together and it comes to a grand total of £5.
I propose that we give everyone in the room an apple from the barrel.
Someone asks “But how can we afford to do that? 50 apples at £5 each? That’s going to cost £250. We only have £5. Where will we get all the extra money from?”
Silly question? Yes or No?
