Adding another nail to the coffin of Reaganomics, a recent study published by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) has concluded that, contrary to the principles of “trickle-down” economics, an increase in the income share of the wealthiest people actually leads to a decrease in GDP growth.
"The benefits do not trickle down," the authors of the study write, Directly Contradicting the theory That US President Ronald Reagan popularized in the 1980s. Reagan argued That decreasing the tax burden for the rich-investors, executives, corporations and the like-would not only income Increase Their Own goal broad Stimulate Economic Growth As They create Opportunities for others' Increased prosperity. This belief has-been at the center of conservative economic thought in the United States and abroad since Reagan's presidency, he During qui cut tax rates for the rich.

Aim the IMF study's five authors say we shoulds INSTEAD focus on raising the income of the poor and the middle class. "Widening income inequality is The Defining challenge of our time," they write. "In advanced economies, the gap entre les rich and poor is icts at Highest Level in decades."

Raising up the poor Appears to-have a dramatic effect: A 1% Increase in the income share of the bottom quintile results in a 0.38% Increase in GDP. Meanwhile, a 1% Increase in the income share of the top 20% results in a 0.08% decrease in GDP growth.


The IMF study comes with caveats. The dataset is from a wide-range of countries, some with better than others available data. Also, inequality is far more skewed in developing countries than in countries with advanced economies, Producing be outliers. Lastly, The Findings about the top quintile's adverse effect on GDP growth Was significant at the 90% confidence interval (a measure the certainty of the statistic) goal fell short of the 95% gold standard social science research Within.The IMF study comes with caveats.

I'm not sure anyone even comes here anymore, and it's been so long since I have made an attempt to say anything, I think I sorta forgot how..But I like Bernie Sanders, Strange to see Him attacked  by the left. . the far left a small group of vocal but terribly confused people..I have my  Issues with our unlimited support of Israel .. HOWEVER .. I agree with Bernie .. No one likes s to see  Hospitals bombed or innocent people .. hurt..but long story short .. how else do you deal with an ISIS or Hamas? Innocent people .. hey no one wants to see innocent people hurt..well except Republicans ... but remember WW2 plenty of innocent people in Japan and Germany .. but We had to suck it up and drop bombs on Berlin Dresden Hamburg, Tokyo, Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Because in order to defeat an evil that Threatened to consume everything .. innocent people got hurt..innocent People That by the way might have done more to stop the war from happening, or atrocities from being  Committed .. There Are A Few on the fringes That Would like nothing better than to watch Islamic Inmates take over the asylum That is our world .. I'm not that crazy not yet. I want things to get better not sink into hell.
