    Maybe if the rich funneled some of the money they stole from the poor and middle class wage earners the unwashed masses would be able to go to work and earn a decent living. Till then grab all you can 2014 is coming and your conservative and tea bagging buddies will be looking for new jobs

    A lack of food isn't a problem in our country at least, too much food and the wrong kinds of food are the problems.

    That is in no way attributed to "trickle down economics" but to liberalized international trade and opening formally closed economies to the miracle of entrepreneurialism. A massive amount of the success of developing nations is genuinely "bottom up" driven.

    It would seem they don't. For it's just some of the rehashed anti-rich crap the hippies would putting out in the 60's..
