The real meaning of trickle down economics

From Sandy Ratcliffe, Asheville:

I will continue to pay my cleaning woman, my hairdresser, my manicurist, anyone for whose services I would normally be paying throughout the month. I’m doing this even though I won’t actually be using their services for…a while. If everyone who could afford this did the same, it could make a big difference for lots of folks. (Letter to editor, AC-T, March 26, 2020)

Compare this to Republican trickle-down economics. Ms. Ratcliffe’s approach is beautiful. The other is ugly.
