Getting hold of it

Abstract

Every so often a man dressed rather unusually in a white suit knocks on doors and gives the occupants a £5 note if they can produce a packet of Splodge, the whitest detergent of all. If the white-suited character called on all the houses in Britain every week, handing out his free fivers, what would happen? Would we all put the money in the bank? Or rush off to the shops on a spending spree? Probably it would depend on how much income we had already. But what would be the effect if we all decided ‘easy come, easy go’ and spent it as fast as Mr White Suit shelled it out?
