A foreign businessman goes to Russia on behalf of a large company, looking to build a factory. He contacts several construction companies to get quotes.
The Germans tell him that they can build the plant with top of the line materials and engineering for 2 million euros.
The Turks tell him they can build the plant cheap, for only 1 million euros — but quality will obviously suffer.
Then along comes a Russian contractor. He tells the businessman that he has the best solution! Pay him 3 million. He will hire the Turks to build the plant for 1 mil, and he and the rep each get 1 mil for themselves!
