@trickster damn really who would've fucking thought /s
@trickster Imagine my surprise
@trickster I feel like trickle down economics makes sense when imagining a perfect world. I don't blame its creator for being wrong.
@Lofenyy if all the rich people were as rich as most common people then trickle down would work cause they would spend the blasted money
@trickster This right here is why I thought it made sense. I thought rich people would regularly spend money, especially if they had so damn much and only so many years to live...
@padraic_padraic IT KEEPS HAPPENING!!
@trickster first time as tragedy, nth time as farce for all n>1
Taxes are an incentive for investments, because investing reduces profits and therefore taxes.
Cutting tax rates, cuts the incentive on investment.
How did the theory, that tax cuts are helping the economy come up?
@gom the answer lies in politics, not economy
@trickster Surprised pikachu_face [same as it ever was]
