A physicist, a chemist, and an economist are shipwrecked on a desert island with only a can of beans to eat and no way to open it.
The physicist makes a suggestion: “I can calculate just the right angle, mass, and velocity of a projectile that will knock the top off the can.”
“No!” the economist cries, “That might spill the beans.”
The chemist then says, “I can make a compound from some local plants that will eat through the tin and open the can.”
“Fool! That would contaminate the beans!” says the Economist.
Exasperated, the other two ask the economist if he has a plan. “Of course!” says the economist, “The solution is simple. First, we assume we have a can opener…”
