We don't need all of this wealth to trickle down. We just need a certain amount.

My 401k has nearly doubled since 2009. Not including my contributions to it. So some of it has trickled down.

Only 50 percent of Americans own stock.

So 50% of Americans are directly benefiting from the rise in stock prices? That is a decent number actually.

Despite attempts by liberals, you cannot legislate prosperity.

I wasn't aware trickle down meant to only 1/2 the population.

Heh. Only recovering or moderately beating your market value after half a decade is doing better? You've lost time you can't recover. Guess that's why so many 55 and over are still working and NOT retiring. Funny but before the recession hit, companies in my industry was exchanging average and median age of employees because they absolutely wanted to ensure experienced mgmt/engineers to replace the baby boomers.

Only baby boomers I see taking retirement are those who can take early retirement packages and then immediately have another job lined up. No one I know personally that retired has stopped working.

That would probably be the same 50% that actually pay taxes.

Why do the others need a 401k? They are already supported by the gov't.

So now you're claiming 50% of Americans are supported by the gov't. Either you're nuts or your definition of "supported" is quite broad.

Am I allowed to make up my own stats too?


anyways, you guys are off point. How is stock accounts going up proving trickle down works?
