ECONOMICS FOR REAL PEOPLE: The Parable of the Broken Window

My friends at the Auckland Uni Economics Group have started up again this year, and they’ve invited me to speak to them tonight about the most prevalent fallacy in economics, one made only more topical by the Christchurch earthquake: The Broken Window Fallacy.

Why not come along?

On a completely different note, anyone care to set some anarchists straight about the Austrian school of economics?

Damn, I had it down for Thursday and missed this PSA. Always Tuesday then?

I like also the Spanish French railway built on the Basque coast,to encourage bilateral trade,in the post Napoleonic era.
The railway was rendered useless when tarrifs were raised;
French against Spanish goods, and Spain against French goods.
