The Town Is Out Of Debt


This was sent via our Facebook page, its hilarious, but also makes you wonder, can it be that simple?
  
THE VELOCITY OF MONEY (Author Unknown)

It is a slow day in the East Texas town of Madisonville . It is raining, and the little town looks totally deserted. Times are tough, everybody is in debt and everybody lives on credit.


On this particular day a rich tourist from the East is driving through town. He enters the only hotel in the sleepy town and lays a hundred dollar bill on the desk stating he wants to inspect the rooms upstairs in order to pick one to spend the night.


As soon as the man walks up the stairs, the hotel proprietor takes the hundred dollar bill and runs next door to pay his debt to the butcher.


The butcher takes the $100 and runs down the street to pay his debt to the pig farmer.


The pig farmer then takes the $100 and heads off to pay his debt to the supplier of feed and fuel.


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 and has lately had to offer her "services" on credit.


The hooker runs to the hotel and pays off her debt with the $100 to the hotel proprietor paying for the rooms that she had rented when she brought clients to that establishment.


The hotel proprietor then lays the $100 bill back on the counter so the rich traveler will not suspect anything.


At that moment the traveler from the East walks back down the stairs after inspecting the rooms. He picks up the $100 bill and states that the rooms are not satisfactory. Pockets the money and walks out the door and leaves town.


No one earned anything.


However the whole town is now out of debt, and looks to the future with a lot of optimism.

Why freight factoring is so important to a carrier?  Freight factoring is the blood flow of cash flow, a carrier to remain competitive and operate successfully must offer credit to its customers, typically 30 to 90 days, so this is cash that the business will not receive right away, so how can the business operate having to wait that long for their payments, well, freight factoring?  With factoring, the trucking company sells its outstanding invoices to a factoring company right after the invoice is issued, providing the carrier with the necessary cash to continue operating without a cash flow shortfall. https://www.1sttruckingfactoring.com

Samsung Safety Truck works to make trucks transparent

Getting stuck behind a slow-moving truck on a one-lane road is never fun. You can't see what's ahead. You could pass the truck, but is there enough room? Samsung's "Safety Truck" might be the solution. It uses a wireless camera on the truck's front grille, which connects to four displays on the rear of the truck. Vehicles behind the truck can see if another car is approaching (even in the dark), and pass the truck when the coast is clear. Take a look at the YouTube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6GNGfse9ZK8
