Trickle-Down Economics Explained
You're at a bar with a friend.... let's call him George.
Explain to George that the two of you are going to share a beer. But he'll have to front you the money for it, but there will be enough beer for the both of you if he'll only help stimulate the economy a little!
Purchase said beer, making sure to get a glass, and drink it. At some point, George is bound to wonder where his portion of the beer is, since after all he paid for it. Should he ask you, remind him that he must be patient and wait for market forces to go to work. If he asks you more than once, wag your finger and accuse him of making class war, and remind him about the market forces again.
At some point you'll have to excuse yourself for obvious reasons. Make sure to take your glass with you. George will want to know why, and he may be more than a little annoyed by now. Chalk it up to market forces, of course.
This part should be pretty obvious. Why else would you need the glass?
When you return, make a big thing of presenting George with the glass. When he asks what in the hell this is supposed to be, as well he should, let him know that the market has spoken, creating a whole 'nother beer (assuming the glass is full). Thanks to the market's power of beer creation, you both got a FULL beer instead of half a beer!
George may get suspicious and speculate that perhaps you've just stolen his money and whizzed in his glass.... stinkin' socialist!
