Can remember I once read a story, which you may or may not find amusing.
It was where a thief is caught after a theft that went wrong.
His pursuer, a policeman that had been after him for a very long time, pointed out to the thief how much money he had cost the police and the amount of time that the courts would waste in bringing him to justice. To which the thief replied, ah yes, but think of the amount of revenue and work I have created along the way."
"How so", says the policeman
Thief "Well by stealing, the Insurance company can sell insurance, thus creating jobs"
Policeman "Yes but insurance premiums will rise"
Thief "Very true, but it gives them an excuse to increase their costs, for a small change in premium, which in turn generates higher profits"
Thief "By avoiding being caught for so many years, I have given the police a reason for existing and created work for them, and been the source of countless comedians jokes, newspapers being sold, media service personnel employment and have generated a vast economy for so little outlay.
" All in all even now I have been caught, there is a prison service reliant on keeping me in jail and many hours of court time with the associated work created for judges jurors solicitors barristers etc. I am truly a boon to society for creating so much wealth out of such a small amount stolen by comparison, and at the end of the day, you will have to feed and clothe me for a few years, until my release, when I can provide you all with my invaluable service yet again"
