One of the most amusing — and fallacious — aspects of the government-shutdown debate is when statists argue that a layoff of public-sector personnel would spell economic disaster for America. Laying off all those people, statists say, would add to the ranks of the unemployed, thereby increasing welfare payments. It would also, they say, be a death knell to countless businesses that would no longer receive the business of all those laid-off workers.
