In economics we talk about the fallacy of the seen and the unseen. For example when you tax the population for a government make-work project you create jobs but as many or more jobs are being lost because the population doesn’t have that money to spend in the shops. Well talk about a laboured analogy, but everyone posts about the stars who are dying, yet no one sees the stars that are being born!

RIP. George Michael and Carrie Fischer, et al.
