So as long as funding for it is taken by sterilizing foreign aid over (at least) ten years, and so as long as its used for education and improvement of ghettos and poverty pockets as a whole instead of "muh black descendants", I wholeheartedly agree. But I guess this isnt a popular solutio...

Unsurprised at your conclusion since that's the natural byproduct of oversimplification of any set of ideas. Imagine being the only person here who can't see your own idea for what it actually is. I'm sure you wouldn't say it if I were to use your own personal ideology as an example. But why care, ...

Trickle-down focuses on net tax cutting though. The proposal's to transfer income directly from the poor to the rich. The core idea is essentially the same, "if we enable or help the rich do whatever the fuck they want, eventually they'll help the poor. Right? Right?" Unsurprised at your ...

I'd like to hop on the bandwagon and reiterate that "trickle down" economics has been a theory for, like, 130 years at this point. This idea is nowhere near "new". Trickle-down focuses on net tax cutting though. The proposal's to transfer income directly from the poor to the rich.

Given that the ratio was 20% on a good year for the mkt's then its not stretching it by calling out a mean of 30pc. Except it is. Because you're taking the best-case scenario, and boosting it by 50% with literally no justification. Periods of high market growth benefit the rich disproportionately (...

That assumes an exceptionally good market and that the rich make investments which will benefit the lower classes ( so, none of what I mentioned ). Not really. It assumes an average, mid-stage-cycle market and the data based on income encompasses all the way from 1988 to 2008 -- a period that wasn'...

At worst, it's no worse than redistribution to the poor. No, you're advocating a totally state-managed economy, with no private business at all. If your arguments weren't total bullshit, this would be vastly better than any capitalist system. Not really, it's just inverted social-democracy at most

You're aware that this plan would end up in having a share of the added wealth (est. at 30%) trickling down in the form of added income to the bottom 99%, right? Needless to say, total compensation's stagnated since the 2000s, as has productivity. Rather fair deal then, I'd say. You say "est.&...

No CEO in the world consistently produces financial returns anywhere near computers flipping stocks. By your arguments, then, the CEOs should just shut up shop and give all of the money to the computers. That's untrue, daytrading is rather unprofitable as a whole given that it's mostly a zero-sum g...

But of course, I understand your implied point - after all, its the rich who invest back into capital. And I mean, aside from a diatribe about concentration of wealth and how that's mildly terrifying, they don't invest their money into it, do they? In fact, they don't re-invest significant portions...

Which is my point. The Industrial Revolution, along with the policy I proposed, have their benefits focused on the long-run. Which is a desirable thing unless if you're expecting to live only for a decade or two more. Except that the thing that made it better was the money ceasing to be concentrate...

This proposition only benefits the poor if it were ensured that these subsidies were used in ways to benefit the poor, instead of just being used to make more profits for the rich ( further automation, personal savings, buying out smaller businesses, etc. ) - which was exactly what we saw with rega...

We could replace stupid and pointless jobs like doing a repetitive tasks at a fast food restaurant and instead try focusing in pushing the poor into more useful manual labor and raising the wages for those jobs more than others. Or we could just do Socialism and make work democratic for everybody. ...
