Everyday Einstein – 8.4.2010

In this economic downturn, we all work hard to make money. Here’s a puzzle about a man who earns it, and then does the exact opposite of what you think he should:

“A man took considerable trouble to acquire some money, but then quickly gave most of it away? Why?

– He did not intend to give the money away, and did not do so under altruistic motives.

– He was under pressure.

– He was not a stockbroker.

– He was not trying to launder his money in the usual sense of the word.

This puzzle brought to you by the Super Lateral Thinking Puzzles created by Paul Sloane and Des MacHale.
