    Default The greek bailout repaid??

    THE GREEK BAILOUT
    It is a slow day in a little Greek village. The rain is beating down and the streets are deserted.
    Times are tough, everybody is in debt, and everybody lives on credit.
    On this particular day a rich German tourist is driving through the village, stops at the local hotel and lays a €100 note on the desk, telling the hotel owner that he wants to inspect the rooms upstairs in order to pick one to spend the night.
    The owner gives him some keys and, as soon as the visitor has climbed upstairs, the hotelier grabs the €100 note and runs next door to pay his debt to the Opel Dealer for the intermediate service on his Vectra.
    The Opel Dealer takes the €100 note and runs down the street to repay his debt to the Second Hand Parts Supplier.
    The Second Hand Parts Supplier takes the €100 note to pay his bill at the Car Breakers.
    The guy at the Car Breakers takes the €100 note and runs to pay his bill to the Breakdown Rescue guy for the insurance write offs.
    The Breakdown Rescue guy slips the money along to the local prostitute drinking at the bar, who has also been facing hard times and has had to offer him “services” on credit.
    The hooker then rushes to the hotel and pays off her room bill to the hotel owner with the €100 note.
    The hotel proprietor then places the €100 note back on the counter so the rich traveller will not suspect anything.
    At that moment the traveller comes down the stairs, states that the rooms are not to his satisfaction, picks up and pockets the €100 note and leaves town.
    No one produced anything.
    No one earned anything.
    However the whole village is now out of debt and looking to the future with much more optimism.
    And that, Ladies and Gentlemen, is how the bailout package works!

    Never a truer word if only the powers that be recognised that we KNOW this to be the case.
