This thread reminds me of the guy who offered a ounce gold coin if the could guess the current market value.
From my chair the op described a circle of debt. The way the debt was cleared was by an outside "investor" who's money was used with out his
knowledge. As long as the money gets back in the cookie jar before mama checks, all is good. Unfortunately, in one real life example of what happens
when one gets caught with a hand in the jar is the Mr Madoff with the money. Last year the Tourist was us lil folk making stimulus and buying into car
companies. Problem is they wont get that $100 bucks back.
Something else I address in thread. Take the OP and lets say the tourist found out his money was used and demanded interest. The hotel owner would
then be in debt to the tourist for the amount of interest. Similar to what is posted. The Hotel owner then passes this on the next person in an
attempt to recover. The practice moves down the line until it gets to the prostitute. Her debtor refuses to pay interest. She demands payment but
eventually gets screwed.
