It's a cash business. It's good for evading the tax man. Fares off the flag are all yours, as are tips. You declare some reasonable amount. 8% say. Then if audited you act really rude. Then the audior knows why you only make eight percent.

And Islamic law has all kinds of regulations about banking, which is why their economies are so bad.
