This is a very clear-headed essay on "trickle-down" economics and tax cuts for the rich. Here, Sowell points out that there is a rampant misconception amongst the Left regarding why many fiscal conservatives favour tax cuts for the rich.

Well reasoned and well annotated read. Should be read by anyone that has heard the term "trickle down economics". The book is a short read and can easily be finished in an hour or less. Thomas Sowell always writes with a clear and concise style.

An excellent article that deconstructs the Left's disingenuous claim that tax cuts only benefit the wealthy.

This monograph absolutely puts an end to the drivel about "trickle down" economics. I started to highlight, but I ended up highlighting everything. It is well written (of course, it is Thomas Sowell) and impeccably researched.
