Complaint: Landslides are good for the economy. The recent damage to Highway 441 has caused the FHA to enter into a contract worth $3,989,890 for repairs. The Eastern Tribe of Cherokee and the National Park Service have in addition offered bonuses valued up to $500,000 for completing the work early.
Recommendation: Fix the road, but don’t pretend you’ve never heard of the broken windows fallacy.
