Money was running out for Jack, a struggling businessman. In fact, his financial problems had become so great that he had decided to leave town for a few weeks so he could “sort things out.” One day Jack was walking through some woods when a man came up to him. Assuming that Jack was the owner of the forest, he said, “I will give you $3,000 for that tree behind you.” When asked why he would pay so much for one tree, the man said: “I represent a lumber company, and this is a virgin forest of mature black walnut trees. They are worth a lot.”
