Economic Stimulus Analogy………

Itis 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.

Heenters the only hotel, lays a 100 Euro note on the reception counter,and goes to inspect the rooms upstairs in order to pick one.

Thehotel proprietor takes the 100 Euro note and runs to pay his debt tothe butcher.

TheButcher takes the 100 Euro note, and runs to pay his debt to the piggrower.

Thepig grower takes the 100 Euro note, and runs to pay his debt to thesupplier of his feed and fuel.

Thesupplier of feed and fuel takes the 100 Euro note and runs to pay hisdebt to the town’s prostitute that in these hard times, gave her"services" on credit.

Thehooker runs to the hotel, and pays off her debt with the 100 Euro noteto the hotel proprietor to pay for the rooms that she rented whenshe brought her clients there.

Thehotel proprietor then lays the 100 Euro note back on the counter sothat the rich tourist will not suspect anything.

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

Noone earned anything. However, the whole town is now without debt, andlooks to the future with a lot of optimism.

Andthat, ladies and gentlemen, is how the United States Government is doingbusiness today and the main reason that the rest of the worldis now messed up!
