Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The principal doesn't exist and costs nothing to create, so what is it that's being rented? After all, when it is returned, it gets destroyed. When you rent a car, you return the car and pay rental, but the car isn't destroyed by returning it, nor is it created by letting it. The car rental company has had to buy the car and finances that through the rental it charges.

Bush is a symptom, not the disease.
