I was once a fan of trickle-down economics. But no matter how flawed the original concept may or may not have been, which is not the point here, I have to wonder if there is any basis for this theory in an increasingly outsourced economy. When one invests in a business in the US, it likely will go towards companies that oursource their work. For example, if I invest in Boeing, I am ultimately investing in Chinese and other foreign labor. So how does investment favor US workers? Where does the money trickle down? It seems to me that instead of trickling down, much of the money is really just trickling away.
