Trickle-Up Economics describes the best tax policy for any economy, based on 3 simple economic principles that anyone can understand. We read almost daily that the rich are getting richer and that inequality continually increases. Although there are several reasons for this, a major factor is an unfair tax system that places most of the tax burden on work. This book proposes a much better tax policy, both for the economy and the people, based only on simple economic principles that anyone can understand, that maximizes the wealth of society, while distributing that wealth more equitably, without placing an undue burden on the wealthy. This new tax policy will promote work, reduce government handouts, and allow everyone to live more happily.
