The Disaster of “Trickle Down” Economics – Trump, You Are Wrong

Trickle down economics doesn’t work

Trump continues to propose ideas that line his own pockets leaving the ordinary citizen out in the cold.

Local Taxes: Local tax incentives would probably fail when ordinary citizens realize they can no longer deduct these assessments. [1]

Wages: Line workers would never see pay raises.  Tax breaks for the wealthy and corporations mean that executive bonuses will increase, shareholder dividends will increase and the corporation’s bank accounts will become even more inflated.  History has proven that the money for these wealthy tax incentives do not “trickle down” to the ordinary worker. [2][3][4]
