Hey, forget the space aliens! We now have a new economic stimulus package: the earthquake!
Actually, no. It was too small, just like the "stimulus," darn it! Paul Krugman has given us the Ultimate Broken Window Fallacy post on Google about yesterday's earthquake (which I admit we did NOT feel here in Riga):
"People on Twitter might be joking, but in all seriousness, we would see a bigger boost in spending and hence economic growth if the earthquake had done more damage."Now, if we only could get the space aliens to induce and earthquake, we all could get rich!!
