Trickle Down Economics Circa 1896

Picture of American child laborer working in harsh conditions at a factory.


"There are those who believe that, if you will only legislate to make the well-to-do prosperous, their prosperity will leak through on those below. The Democratic idea, however, has been that if you legislate to make the masses prosperous, their prosperity will find its way up through every class which rests up on them."

 ~  William Jennings Bryan to the Democratic National Convention. 


Funny how we must re-learn the mistakes of the past so often.
