    is that good for the economy?

    A.) Yes, it creates work for a window maker.
    B.) Yes, it helps circulate money from the business owner to another part of the economy.
    C.) No, because the business owner could have used that money for something else just as important like a new suit.
    D.) Derp derp derp.

    Friggin poll glitched out on me.

    You left out how much money the funeral business makes when the armed shop owner kills the kid.

    What does that have to do with the price of haircuts?

    I say "C". The barber, like all of us, should decide how we spend our money and not be forced to purchase something we didn't plan on. (like Obamacare)

    Second, the kid's parents should pay since they didn't bother to teach their child to behave responsibly. But, rarely do the little shits get caught and the owner ends up giving up something else so they can pay for the damage.

    Did WW2 help end the Great Depression in the United States?

    The broken window fallacy is a fallacy of limited thinking.

    Is the kid Joe Biden and does he throw the rock through the window because he figured Obama would be better off to have the rock as his VP candidate?
