How the economic stimulus works
Young Barry in Illinois bought a horse from a farmer for $100.
The farmer agreed to deliver the horse the next day.
The next day the farmer drove up and said, “Sorry son, but I have some bad news… the horse died.”
Barry replied, “Well, then just give me my money back.”
The farmer said, “Can't do that. I went and spent it already.”
Barry said, “Ok, then, just bring me the dead horse.”
The farmer asked, “What ya gonna do with him?”
Barry said, “I'm going to raffle him off.”
The farmer said, “You can't raffle off a dead horse!”
Barry said, “Yes, I can. Watch me. I just won't tell anybody he's dead.”
A month later, the farmer met up with Barry and asked, “What happened with that dead horse?”
Barry said, “I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at two dollars apiece and made a profit of $898.”
The farmer said, “Didn't anyone complain?”
Barry said, “Just the guy who won. So I gave him his two dollars back.”
Barry now works for the government.
