Don't Put All Your 'Eggs' in One Basket
The old poultry-based admonition “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket” works for three reasons. The first is the well-known fragility of eggs. Second is the minimal protection afforded by a basket and third, of course, is the notorious undependability of basket carriers. It is not hard to see corollaries of all three in today’s hog and pork markets.
