5 Charts On “Trickle-Down” Economics

From Ted McLaughlin at jobsanger:

These charts are from the Economic Policy Institute. They published their 13 best charts of 2016, and all of them are interesting. I picked these five charts to show you because they illustrate how disastrous the Republican “trickle-down” economic policy (initiated about 1980 and carried forth by Republicans since then) has been for most Americans.

The GOP’s economic policies have been great for the top 1%, and even better for the top 0.1% — but they have not been good for the rest of the American population.

We have a comment policy (sort of)

We often encounter extreme amounts of spam targeting more controversial posts. This tends to annoy and confuse Aunt Tildy. If your comment is accidentally omitted, please help her out by resubmitting, perhaps including a note telling us what happened. If you find comments closed, we can still put yours in its proper place. Just attach to another post with an explanation.

Aunt Tildy appreciates most every comment. Truly. But she has what could be an unrealistic view of the innocence of younger readers. She may hesitate when profanity becomes extreme.

In some cases, you might follow our lead. When we ruffle her delicate sensibilities, a soft apology has usually helped.
