As the supposed virus spreads, so does their cash
By EG Manilag, Staff Writer
After accidentally producing too much product, China’s government—cunningly and covertly—has decided to make compensations by propagating a fake epidemic that would definitely make people buy off their surplus in face masks.
It was a grand success for China’s government. In just a span of just three days, they fully made their cost back for the excess, and they also made a whopping 3000 percent Return on Investment (ROI). Everything was going smooth for them until the fallacious news went international.
Instead of backing down and calling it a day, the Chinese government still hustled and continued their journey, bribing other countries to go with their grand scheme. But, as it turns out, the leaders in these countries gladly accepted the offer with no hints of hesitation. And as we know today, people around the world are buying off face masks like crazy.
China’s plan did not as far as they would expect, however, because a lot of government-owned businesses have been largely undermined—particularly airline and hotel companies. Keeping the large piles of face masks and preserving them for future use was simply not an option for them to consider.
