Trickle Down Economics is a terms coined in United States politics to refer to the idea that tax breaks or other economic benefits provided by government to businesses and the wealthy will benefit poorer members of society by improving the economy as a whole. First employed during the great depression and later implemented and made popular in the "Reagan Years" which overlapped with Reagan's economic policies called "Reaganomics" or "Laissez-fair or hands off government. It usually favors big business for the purpose of stimulating a proliferating job growth and industry. Some people claim that such a thing doesn't exist and that it is in place to give tax cuts to the rick like George Bush's Tax Cuts and the Fiscal Cliff. So what do you think is it real or just a myth to make the rich richer? Because apparently it worked during the Reagan years but its not working now.
