I am going to be hosting a discussion of Henry Hazlitt's "Economics in One Lesson" Chapters 1 - 3
Friday morning 05-14-2010 at 10 am EST on BlogTalkRadio. It will be the first show that I have attempted. 

I have posted pre show notes on my blog athttp://wolfravenous.wordpress.com/ in which I link to the interviews on the Mises site conducted by Jeffery Tucker about those chapters with Block, DiLorenzo, and Herbener. 

The link to access the show page is: http://bit.ly/9DJUYA

I just wanted to try and do something to help raise awareness of some of the economic fallacies that are pervasive in our society.

You must consider not just the seen (the new window) but also the unseen, any other item/s of value that might have been produced using the same resources, material, time, labor had they not been required to replace the broken window.  Those unseen items are now unrealizable.  It is the opportunity cost factor!

@Arvin  also whether or not someone is a collectivist or a person that believes in individual liberty, has nothing at all to do with whether or not the person is a racist.  Your second comment was completely absurd!

@wolfravenous: i think Arvin was being sarcastic :-)
