Have you even seen Kansas recently? Looked at the yawning chasm that is its economy?
Here's a rather good article on 'Trickle-down' economics.

Actually it's a terrible article. Especially if you're trying to use it as evidence of... Something ? It's an Opinion Fluff piece bemoaning that rich people are rich, and the poor are poor. There is no real discussion of economics, just opinions, there is no actual meat to any point, and the points themselves ? Too many rich people... Too much crony capitalism by the government "fiddling" (their words) with the markets.

And the last paragraph sums the opinion piece, or reframes it perhaps... Altering the public's opinion in regards to Redistribution of wealth is the basic goal of the piece. The government can't manage the markets properly, so for the sake of our species (their words) wealth must be redistributed and the way we measure wealth personally altered to reflect this new paradigm.


But let me ask you, since you quoted me. Was the United States worse economically in 1979 or 1990 ?
