Village-burning dragons are Keynesians.
The medievals were only too right in taking nolo episcopari as the best reason a man could give to others for making him a bishop. Give me a king whose chief interest in life is stamps, railways, or race-horses; and who has the power to sack his Vizier (or whatever you care to call him) if he does not like the cut of his trousers.

Government is an abstract noun meaning the art and process of governing and it should be an offence to write it with a capital G or so as to refer to people.

Village-burning dragons are Keynesians.

In this universe, it's the 'burnt village fallacy' rather than the 'broken window fallacy'.

Dragons burning villages is not an optimal route to economic health!

But...but...all the villagers will have ample work in the building industry!

As long as all the villagers leave the village before it's burned down, Paul Krugman will approve of the dragon's antics.

I think Krugman would prefer the Dragon paid a 70% tax on all wealth it takes in after the first 10 million gold pieces and a wealth tax on the accumulated horde so that the villagers can build decent infrastructure, rather than the Dragon simply destroying the village.

No, they are not.  They are just written that way.
