The New Math

It’s August in a small village near the black sea. It’s raining and the village looks abandoned. It’s a time of hardship. The inhabitants are all in debt and are surviving on credit.

Suddenly a rich tourist arrives and enters the only hotel available in the village. He puts down a 100 Euro note on the counter and rushes upstairs to the first floor to look for a room.

The hotel owner picks up the 100 Euro and rushes directly to the butcher to pay off his debt. The butcher immediately takes the note to pay off his debt to the pig farmer. The pig farmer in turn, heads way immediately to the only prostitute in the village (who provides services on credit) and pays her 100 Euro for services provided to him.

The prostitute hurries to the hotel and pays the owner for the night during which she provided her service. The hotel owner puts the 100 Euro note back on the counter.

At this moment the rich tourist comes downstairs, picks up the 100 Euro note and leaves as he is not satisfied with the room.

The Moral of the story is: Nobody has earned anything, but the whole village is clear of debt.
