    Stimulus Package

    Post by Willows on Sat Nov 27, 2010 6:22 am

    It is a slow day in the small Saskatchewan town of Pumphandle and
    streets are deserted. Times are tough, everybody is in debt, and
    everybody is living on credit.

    A tourist visiting the area drives through town, stops at the motel, and
    lays a $100 bill on the desk saying he wants to inspect the rooms
    upstairs to pick one for the night.

    As soon as he walks upstairs, the motel owner grabs the bill and runs
    next door to pay his debt to the butcher.

    The butcher takes the $100 and runs down the street to retire his debt
    to the pig farmer.

    The pig farmer takes the $100 and heads off to pay his bill to his
    supplier, the Co-op.

    The guy at the Co-op takes the $100 and runs to pay his debt to the
    local prostitute, who has also been facing hard times and has had to
    offer her "services" on credit.

    The hooker rushes to the hotel and pays off her room bill with the hotel

    The hotel proprietor then places the $100 back on the counter so the traveler will not suspect anything.

    At that moment the traveler comes down the stairs, states that the rooms
    are not satisfactory, picks up the $100 bill and leaves.

    No one produced anything. No one earned anything... However, the whole
    town is now out of debt and now looks to the future with a lot more

    And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how a "stimulus package" works.
