(10 points) In Henry Hazlitt’s “Broken Window” story the glazier gained $250 in business because the hoodlum broke the window of the baker. Some witnesses argue that the glazier will now have $250 more to spend with other merchants and that the smashed window will go on providing money and employment in ever-widening circles. The logical conclusion from all this would be that the little hoodlum who threw the brick, far from being a public menace, was a public benefactor. How might Henry Hazlitt respond to this position? (Answer in 200 words or less)
In the "Broken Window" Hazlitt states that that money could have also gone to the tailor that the baker was intending to buy a suit from, so the tailor is in turn losing potential money earnings. Also, destroying property diminishes the value of the area, so overall it is a loss for the community. Hazlitt would say that the tailor, many people, are being left behind in the consideration and that all angles need to be evaluated to be a good economist.
