Not quite.

Or try to do the maths again.

A pays B a sum S.
B pays A a sum 10 times S.

So there remains a net cash flow of 9 times S from B to A.

A has many customers C, paying a little sum s to A.
So every cash flow effectivly ends up at A.

I don't see how C actually feeds B here.

cheers,
Jw.
