The best investment strategy: Mr. Li asked his chauffeur to pick up the $2 coin for him, and he could save the $100 tips. But there will be no fairy tale for him to tell us.
The medical bills for a seventy-nine years old billionaire to bend down and to pick up a coin and hurts himself may come to millions. It will be a very bad investment. Mr. Li will never tell any of this in his stories. Fortunately, there was a 亞差 around to do that for him. So, a happy ending like a Hollywood movie.
When 誠哥 did it once, the ROI could be 2,000,000% plus (when goodwill is factored in), but when “各人均從口袋拋下一枚兩元硬幣… 異口同聲：誠哥你跌咗兩蚊", and if 誠哥did it again, the “law of diminishing returns" applies.
So, he will for sure cry out loud when it happens next time, without hesitation or even turning his head, POOR MORE – YOU KEEP IT!

Untold version of 李嘉誠的講法:
Billionaire Mr. Li does not carry any cash with him, but a lot of platinum credit cards. His personal assistant was on vacation that day. He did not have any money to pay that 亞差 and he had to borrow $100 from his chauffeur. He, as usual, too busy to remember to pay back to him afterwards. Hence he gains $2, and saves $100.
I have trouble in calculating this ROI.

誠哥跌兩蚊俾一百，已經引來如此效應，如果真的有一群亞差聞風而至，又均從口袋拋下一枚兩元硬幣，效應何止乘大百倍，得益簡直the ROI could be 2,000,000% plus乘N倍，誠哥一定扮嬲咁派錢，然後怒氣沖沖返回辦公室，嘆一句：poor more明知有錢派都得咁少人黎架，Maria幫我留意CNN，BBC有冇報導呢單新聞。
As Mr. Li has said in the video: You can spend the money, but you cannot waste it.
Mr. Li will urge all the deans of the business schools, like The University of Hong Kong (to which he had make large donations), to ensure that 兩蚊理論 are taught as case studies to all first year business students.
Everyone will know who is Mr. Li, 亞差 , and the Li’s First Commandment of Business before they know what is ROI.

In economics, the multiplier effect refers to the idea that an initial spending rise can lead to even greater increase in national income.
The Li’s Multiplier Effect refers to the idea that the spending of $100 can lead to even greater increase in Li’s income, i.e. $2. It is difficult for us to understand because we are not Mr. Li., and our assets are less than US $32 billion.
