Bill has only two dollars on him, but needs three dollars for the cab fare to get home. He comes up with an idea. He goes to a pawn shop and pawns his $2 for $1.50. He then finds Steve and sells him his $2 pawn ticket for $1.50. Since Bill ends up with the $3 he needs, who is out the extra dollar and why?
