It is 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. He enters the only hotel, lays a 100
Euro note on the reception counter, and goes to inspect the rooms
upstairs in order to choose one. The hotel proprietor takes the 100
Euro note and runs to pay his debt to the butcher. The butcher takes
the 100 Euro note, and runs to pay his debt to the pig grower. The pig
grower takes the 100 Euro note, and runs to pay his debt to the
supplier of his feed and fuel. The supplier of feed and fuel takes the
100 Euro note and runs to pay his debt to the town's prostitute that
in these hard times, gave her "services" on credit. The hooker runs to
the hotel, and pays off her debt with the 100 Euro note to the hotel
proprietor to pay for the rooms that she rented when she brought her
clients there. The hotel proprietor then lays the 100 Euro note back
on the counter so that the rich tourist will not suspect anything. At
that moment, the tourist comes down after inspecting the rooms, and
takes his 100 Euro note, after saying that he did not like any of the
rooms, and leaves town. No one earned anything. However, the whole
town is now without debt, and looks to the future with a lot of
optimism. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how the United States is
doing business today.
The point here is to attract the tourist with some good strategy..but unfortunately the hotel proprietor is only ready to do some stupid magic to show that he can actually be out of debt but he is not at all interested in the hotel's future. Chose the right proprietor this time..after all your hotel is still the best on the planet.Good luck!edit on 18-8-2011 by harishindl because: (no reason given)
