Default Let's hide this one...ok?!

Jimmy, I thought you might like to read this recent article from the Huffington Post. it would seem those 1% that adhere to the philosophy of "Trickle down economics", yeah...them, are trying to suppress an apolitical report that reveals their philosophy is plain old fashioned quackery. It confirms what us "Forward" thinkers have known all along...go figure ((shrugs))

Thanks Fi,good read."Trickle Down" is the "Creationism" of economics.It's held as gospel by right wing ideologues.

nice analogy comrade tom.

trickle down is the cornerstone of tory philosophy. even the most cursory glance at the statistics contradicts that position. There was a recent report that was doing the rounds on TV and radio. The report showed that, while the economy has grown in the last decade, lower and middle income has FALLEN. That means people are working harder, for LESS.

And , in the last thirty years, while the average wage has flatlined, the income of the executives of the top 100 companies has GROWN over 4,000% !!!!!!!

we've been using the expression 'trickle up' for some time now.
