If poor people could do more with less, there would be no poor people. Let’s take care of those at the bottom. Let the system bubble up, as opposed to trickle down.
No more trickle-down economics? Let’s look at what the bulk of the economic recovery spending does: It goes to fund the economic elites in our country, going directly into the bank accounts of big Wall Street firms, in the hopes that they might release some of this money, through big corporations, so that it can trickle on down to working Americans.
Imagine if we had 288 billion given to the development and implementation of renewable energy, and 43 billion given to tax cuts. Then we’d have jobs.
