Hot dogs and recession

leave a comment »

Today I read the german version of the following text. It describes how a recession can occurs:

A very successful hot dog vendor is hitting record sales. He’s advertising, cross-promoting, staying open longer each day and business is fantastic. His son comes home from college for the summer and says, ‘Dad, don’t you know we’re in a recession? You need to watch your spending and be ready for business to slow down.’ The father, concerned, stays awake all that night worrying about what his son has said. The following day he pulls down a lot of his signs and puts the money he would have spent on advertising and promoting in the bank. By the end of the month, business is terrible and all he can say to himself is, ‘Wow, it’s a good thing I listened to my son. There really is a recession.’

Maybe it is truth…
