Bubble Up Economics

What IS “Bubble Up Economics” and how does it work? Simply put, increase minimum wage and all those workers will have more money to spend at American Businesses. The increased sales will cause a need to hire more workers. The increased profits will cause more money to be paid in taxes and increased earnings by stockholders. Everyone WINS.

 

We have tried “Trickle Down Economics” for decades and it has clearly failed. Why not try something different? I have found that when I try something and it fails, and then I try the same thing and it fails again and the it continues to fail for the third, fourth and fifth time… It’s time to notice the trend and try something different. DUH.

Who could possibly be in favor of keeping Cannabis Illegal? Corporations that are in the business of incarceration.
Follow the money: Law Enforcement makes money by arresting people, bringing them to trial and then warehousing them in jail. While REAL crime is on the wane, cannabis arrests are easy and low risk. REAL criminals are often dangerous.

Corporations that make products that compete with hemp. Let’s suppose the corporation makes paper, rope, cloth or medicine… Those businesses would lose sales to hemp. Who makes these products? The Koch Brothers. Paper Towels… Oil… Polymers… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Koch_Industries

and who makes Nylon Rope? Dupont. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DuPont

and who makes Cotton Clothes? http://www.cottoninc.com/ and http://www.uscotton.com/ if farmers made cloth from hemp… the cotton business would have increased competition…

and… Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Corporations. Imagine if a patient grew their own medicine? No profit for the pill makers… Some medicines are extremely addictive and dangerous to the health of the patients… All the makers of opium based medicines would face increased competition from the medical marijuana industry. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_pharmaceutical_companies

and… Recreational Drug Manufacturers… Beer, Wine and Whiskey… If there was FREEDOM OF CHOICE, many people would leave the booze on the shelf. No Cirrhosis, No Hangovers, No AA meetings…

and… Criminals who currently grow and sell Marijuana. Big Business here in the USA and Mexico. HUGE.

and… The DEA seizes property…

and… The ATF sells guns to Mexican Drug Gangs. Operation Fast and Furious… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ATF_gunwalking_scandal

That’s who is in favor of keeping Cannabis Illegal.
