Financial Complications of Bud's Lifestyle Summary

Bud decides that he needs to change jobs because he needs money. After entering a seedy building, he meets with a Parsi banker who calls himself the Peacock Bank. The banker tells Bud that he should get a line of credit and he hands him a brochure. The white piece of smart paper turns into a multimedia presentation that talks about the advantages of owning a credit card from the bank. The credit card would be mounted on a bone near the surface of his skin and would give him automatic credit. Bud asks the banker about the penalties in case he misses one of the payments. The banker answers by pointing to a group of people slavering in a prison-like environment and assembling jewelry. Bud leaves, but keeps the brochure.
