"The money was all appropriated for the top in the hopes that it would
trickle down to the needy. Mr. Hoover didn't know that money trickles
up. Give it to the people at the bottom and the people at the top will
have it before night, anyhow. But it will have at least passed through
the poor fellow's hands."
-- Will Rogers
The problem with trickle-down economics is that most of what trickles
down is yellow. That's why those at the bottom are called "peons".
Sometimes, though, what trickles down is brown. This is known as the
"shit flows downhill" theory.
Basically, though, if anything at all trickles down this is seen as
a form of leakage, which is repaired as soon as practicable.
Large corporations believe that the mere fact of their existence
entitles them to our money. They might let us hold it briefly,
but they want it back promptly - with interest.
