Negotiation, Mel Gibson style

Mel Gibson's public relations disaster continues with the news that he apparently thinks that his ex deserves only 1 percent of his monthly living expenses for child support. He is reportedly trying to limit the monthly child support payments to $6,000, whilst at the same time claiming that he needs $600,000 a month for "absolute necessities".

Now, I don't know the details of this case, but I assume that $6,000 a month is effectively a 'first offer' rather than a serious proposal, although if it is I somewhat doubt whether it will form the basis for successful settlement negotiations.
