The idea behind trickle-down economics was that the wealthy were job creators,
and that by reducing taxes on the affluent,
more jobs would be created,
resulting in prosperity for all.
Trickle-down economics was christened with an official name,
supply side economics, and sold to the American people with a slogan :
a rising tide lifts all boats.
However, you can’t put lipstick on a pig:
the system is called capitalism and it is killing people and the environment.
[ & before you know it,
we’ll be cutting their heads off with guillotines in the town square again 🙂 ]
