Once a counselor Svyn comes to him and recalls that it was time to pay the loan. So Little Prince decides to explore what and why they need a loan to pay it. It turns out that his country has long been living in debt. Previous rulers borrowed money from the bank Three FatMen. Although the bank is called the Three FatMen, actually four fat men owned and operated it, but fourth do not want people to know about his involvement in the bank. Therefore, hiding the existence of four fat man, they call themselves the Three FatMen. Borrowing a certain amount of money, the country is obliged over time to give more money. Only under such conditions Three FatMen agree to lend.

“But it is folly to agree to their terms!” surprisely screaming Little Prince to his adviser.

“Understand” – says little prince – “To use their money on their terms – this is war as a result of which they rob us, confidently says Svitlan.

“You are right” - agrees old counselor, finally realizing all the hidden essence of the situation.

“So go and pick up people in the square, and I will go to them and declare the order to introduce our own money. Let give information for another places of our great country all the inhabitants use only that money, which I ordered. But let them be vigilant for fatmen can change the way in which they conduct war against us, so we have to prepare ...

And Prince called chief scribe to one prepared relevant order and counselor went convene people to announce their good news.
