Dregs Theory

08Nov08

Another name for trickle down economics should be “Dregs Theory”.  The wealth trickles down with the rich at the top and then the bottom picks up the crumbs of whatever isn’t wanted.

    Dregs Theory

    That’s something like the story they tell of the Polish pig farmer.

    He has his pigs in cages, stacked three deep. He feeds the top row of pigs, and the lower two rows eat what falls down to their level, including the pig excrement.

    Then his family eats to top row of pigs. They sell the bottom two rows, fed the dregs, to others. That’s also the conservative “trickle down theory of economics.”
