In my day, this was called Invisible Hand. Or it wasn't, I get my mythologies confused all the time
Can I call it table scraps? Please?Snarkasm aside, "trickle down" <does> work, since it's inherent to Capitalism, as anyone who grasped their basic economics classes can tell you. The Western World wouldn't have been riding America's economic coat-tails for almost 100 years were that not the case, nor would America have been the World's economic powerhouse. Even the Keynesian "economists" like Krugman (and therefore Obama) secretly know it, even if they stupidly assume that Gov't "churn" can somehow take the place of the producers creating wealth. The issues are whether it works well, if it is at all equitable in its workings, if there's anything that might work more efficiently, and if there's legitimate rationale to switch. Of those issues, the only one I find worth debate is whether unnatural monopoly should be tolerated.
