Since Ronald Reagan’s presidency in the 1980s the concept of trickle down economics has been dribbling around. The idea that tax cuts for the wealthy would create a generous surplus that could find its way down into the pockets of poor and working class people, has proven to be nothing more than a myth. Similar to an Amway scheme, only those at the top get richer through shady investments, loop holes and stock buy backs. Developers of luxury housing use a comparable strategy as they pursue depressed areas in cities and towns. They seduce politicians with a trickle of gold by promising jobs, business stimulus and sweet tax relief incentives. This results ind destroying neighborhoods, and displacing the poor which often ends in homelessness.
