Unfortunately, if it wasnt true, it would be hilarious....

It is a slow day on the small Greek Island of Mykonos, and with all the negative publicity Greece has been getting lately, the streets are deserted. Times are tough, everyone is in debt, and the government is living on credit.
A rich tourist visiting the island drives through town, stops at a local hotel, 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 hotel owner grabs the bill and runs next door to pay his debt to the local taverna.
The taverna owner takes the $100 and runs down the street to retire his debt to the goat farmer.
The goat farmer takes the $100 and heads off to pay his bill to his feed supplier at the Farmer's Co-op.
The guy at the Farmer's Co-op takes the $100 and runs to pay his debt to the local prostitute, who has also been facing hard times due to tourist numbers down, and government officials losing their expense allowance, and has had to offer her "services" on credit to the locals.
The hooker on receipt of the $100 rushes to the hotel and pays off her room bill with the hotel owner.
The hotel proprietor then places the $100 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 satisfactory, picks up the $100 bill and leaves town.
No one produced anything. No one earned anything.and no taxes were paid however, the whole town is for the moment out of debt and happily going about chalking-up on credit once again....
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how Greekenomics works.
