Citizen Indicted for Stimulating Economy


Creating jobs by breaking windows is not only bad economics, it’s criminal (except when government does it):

The owner of a glass company accused of a $132,000 scheme to smash Scottsdale school bus windows and profit from the repairs has been indicted.

Investigators claim Vollberg paid Scott Sloan $5,000 to find a person to knock out the glass, and then paid Mike Olivares $15,000 in April 2007 to break out the front windshields of 70 school buses in a Scottsdale bus yard. Vollberg, whose company was a subcontractor for the school district, charged the district $134,000 to repair the windshields.
