:beer: Hmm I've been pondering this very subject recently as I have been lumbered with an integrated double oven I can't use and need to find an alternative buyer as the seller won't take it back. The seller is a friend/aquaintance and was selling it at a very good price (£200 and never been used). I bought it in good faith but then discovered that due to an electrical problem in my kitchen I couldn't use it and had to buy a gas oven instead (which cost me £300 so £500 spent so far).
I thought this friend would take it back as I was sure he could easily find another buyer for such a bargain and he'd have more space to store it. However, he says he can't and now I need to find someone to buy it PDQ.
My dilemma is, do I try to get a bit more for it as I'm sure I could get £250 for it and if so do I split the profit with him?

Sam provided the necessary capital; Frodo did all the work. However, had Frodo failed to find a buyer, Sam would have lost his original stake.
Sam, therefore, was the capitalist who took all the risk of this enterprise and so should receive the profit. Frodo should be content with whatever wage he was offered: he did after all agree to work on that basis.
If anyone thinks differently, and believes that people who do the work should share in the profits they make, well, that person is a Red and should be locked up for many years.
