Ah, trickle down economics! That magical theory that if we just allow the rich to get richer, all that wealth will trickle down to the huddled masses begging for scraps from the rich man’s table.
What a load of crap.
The trickle down economic theory has been one of the biggest economical fallacies ever invented, but the country bought it hook, line and sinker.
And who better to explain trickle down than The Daily Show correspondents, including John Oliver, who nailed it rather bluntly after trying to wax more poetic:
“Rich people are pissing on everyone, but I feel like you’re taking the poetry out of it now.”
