They need to familiarize themselves with Bastiat's parable of the broken window.
It is not a perfect example but the common idea of best use is very relevant.
The same principle can be applied for any government induced "investment"

Before you shoot down this idea, look up some of the experiments done on group-think. One of the most interesting is that a person is placed among a group of 4 or 5 other people. Questions are asked and all but the subject give the wrong answer. After a couple of rounds of this, the subject starts to agree with those giving the wrong answer even though he knows the answer is wrong. The attraction of the group is a powerful thing. This happens with something like 78 percent of the subjects.
