Paris is a great place to spend a vacation. It has fine hotels, world class restaurants, and relatively few poor people in the nice bits. The toilets work more or less like proper ones.
The clowns decided to hold a convention in Paris. They flew in (business class or first class, natch, gotta have room for those long floppy shoes) from all over the world, from rich nations and poor nations. There are more poor nations than rich nations. After much argy bargy the poor nations decided that the rich nations should pay them 100 billion dollars a year. This is called democracy. However the rich clowns are wily old coots, and much of the 100 billion dollars they agreed to give was other people's money, and a fair bit of it had already been promised to the poor nations already, they just changed the label on the suitcases full of bundles of money. Even funnier, the intended contributions from each nation are decided by that nation, are non-binding and unenforceable. By this time the audience was rolling in the aisles, the clowns were performing a great comedy.
After the clowns finished their holidays in Paris they all flew home, and told the grownups what they'd done. The grownups in the poor countries were pleased. The grownups vigorish is somewhere between 10 and 50%, this would allow them to buy more Mercedes (armor plated) and hire more armed thugs, and some could also be safely deposited in Switzerland against a rainy day. The clowns were patted on the head and told to keep up the good work. In the rich countries things didn't go quite as well. However once the grownups realised the contributions were non binding and unenforceable, the grownups wondered exactly why the clowns had bothered, since the people who would actually have to pay the $100 per head per year hadn't asked the clowns to go to Paris for a holiday, and seemed increasingly likely to vote out any grownup who tried to make them pay.
In a rather excellent coda, the Chinese clown wondered where China's share of the loot had got to. He actually needs the money, since he burns as much coal as the rest of the world combined, and needs to pay for it somehow. The new American chief grownup said he wasn't particularly motivated to bail China out. Big clown tears.
