Week 7 Discussion Question A The carnival comes to town. Sam is a snake oil (herbal supplement) salesman. He claims that his snake oil will give its user the strength of ten horses. A dumbbell stamped five hundred pounds rests on the ground. He challenges the crowd to try his oil. Sally (who happens to be Sam’s girlfriend) walks up to Sam and tries the oil. To the astonishment of the crowd, Sally then proceeds to hoist the dumbbell over her head. The crowd buys bottles of the oil.

What should the firm recommend to the client?
