Thank you all for your comments.
The point of the broken window fallacy is that we can see what we get (the glazier getting paid) but we can't see what we don't get (the tailor being paid). At the end of the window-breaking incident, the window is fixed, but nothing else has been added to the town. Without the broken window, there would be an intact window in the town, and also a new suit for someone.
We can see this happening in my own town, right now. For once we can see what we aren't getting!
The town has decided to cancel the Glory Days of the Railroad Festival Saturday, because there is too much clean-up to do. It is also canceling or postponing a bond offering to fix up the ice rink and the town hall (municipal building) because money will have to be spent on fixing up the roads. So after Irene, we will see people employed on the roads, but they will NOT be employed at the municipal building or ice rink. For once, what we don't get (with the broken window) is visible. We'll get our roads back, but the improvements to town properties won't be made, or will be put off for a long time.
Ww won't have a festival. We won't have a good ice rink. We won't have insulation in the municipal building. We will get the roads fixed, but we will be poorer (less fun, no improved town infrastructure) for Irene's broken windows
