    A few years back, we were discussing economics on another message board, and the subject of "trickledown" came up. I noted: "The "trickledown" theory has been characterized as: If you feed a mule enough oats, eventually this will "trickledown" through the mule."

    Another poster wrote back: "perhaps your theory is that if we simply give large amounts of money to workers/consumers, eventually it will "trickleup" through the economy. I don't know what this means for the poor mule, but I'm not sure I want to think about it. LOL"
