RE: The Ted Cruz Crazy Train Continues
"Wealth does not trickle down from the rich to the poor. Period.
That's not Senator Elizabeth Warren talking. That’s the latest conclusion of new research from the International Monetary Fund.

In fact, researchers found that when the top earners in society make more money, it actually slows down economic growth. On the other hand, when poorer people earn more, society as a whole benefits.
The researchers calculated that when the richest 20% of society increase their income by one percentage point, the annual rate of growth shrinks by nearly 0.1% within five years.

This shows that "the benefits do not trickle down," the researchers wrote in their report, which analyzed over 150 countries.
By contrast, when the lowest 20% of earners see their income grow by one percentage point, the rate of growth increases by nearly 0.4% over the same period.”

It was more like "suction up economy". A suctioning of the middle class and poor for the good of the rich.

My actuary brother called it "tinkle down economics" because it's just the rich pissing on the rest of us and telling us it's ambrosia.

Teddy told a group of Republicans yesterday (or so) that he questions whether Trump has the "judgement" to be president. Bwahahahahahahaha

I'd say that that may be the first thing I agree with Cruz about but I don't question whether or not Trump has the judgement to be president... he doesn't.

Trump, Cruz and Carson.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Consumer driven economies are driven by the consumers, who would have thought?

If I remember correctly, TED themselves removed the talk from their site and were attempting to stop others from uploading it or some other nonsense.
