Re: Pedestrians aren't the only ones who matter.

No, it's not. Your point was that treating sickness is an example of increasing economic activity and causing a detriment to society. I am saying that your example is not that because your example is an example of the broken window fallacy and it does not actually increase economic activity, it suppresses it.

Ultimately, I never said that adding highway lanes, or not removing them was beneficial to society in general, my only point is that it's not always neutral or beneficial to remove lanes. It may increase economic activity by decreasing the negative externalities caused by the existence of those lanes or by auto travel itself.
