RE: Not Far from the Tree

Thanks for that article (an excellent example of unintended consequences). I've always enjoyed your father's writing.

As far as "trickle down economics", the phrase itself was an attempt to market fiscally conservative tax policies - in actuallity, there is no real "trickle down theory of economics".

Marketing is one area where the left has a definite advantage. Most policies favored by the left seem good on the surface. After all, if the government needs more money (not getting into spending issues here), they should go to the people who have the most since they can most afford it. The boat yard story shows the flaw in that line of thought
