Funny Economics

Published:

A Friend sent me this in the mail, I'm sure its making the rounds in email, but I enjoyed it so much I have to post it for you.

It is the month of August, on the shores of the Black Sea. It is raining,
and the little town looks totally deserted. It is tough times, everybody is
in debt, and everybody lives on credit.

Suddenly, a rich tourist comes to town.
He enters the only hotel, lays a 100 Euro note on the reception counter,
and goes to inspect the rooms upstairs in order to pick one.
The hotel proprietor  takes the 100 Euro note and runs to pay his debt to
the butcher.
The  Butcher takes the 100 Euro note, and runs to pay his debt to the pig
grower.
The pig grower takes the 100 Euro note, and runs to pay his debt to the
supplier of his feed and fuel.
The supplier of feed and fuel takes the 100 Euro note and runs to pay his
debt to the town's prostitute that in these hard times, gave her "services"
on credit.
The hooker runs to  the hotel, and pays off her debt with the 100 Euro note
to the hotel proprietor to pay for the rooms that she rented when she
brought her clients there.
The hotel proprietor then lays the 100 Euro note back on the counter so that
the rich tourist will not suspect anything.

At that  moment, the rich tourist comes down after inspecting the rooms, and
takes his 100 Euro note, after saying that he did not like any of the rooms,
and leaves town.

No one earned anything. However, the whole town is now without debt, and
looks to the future with a lot of optimism.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how the United States Government is
doing business......

sounds just like our government, but only problem is that when they were moving money around they left me out of the giving and paying part. they just want to take from my end.
