„Once you realize that trickle-down economics does not work, you will see the excessive tax cuts for the rich as what they are -- a simple upward redistribution of income, rather than a way to make all of us richer, as we were told.“

„If you feed enough oats to the horse, some will pass through to feed the sparrows (referring to "trickle down" economics).“

— John Kenneth Galbraith American economist and diplomat 1908 - 2006
Context: Mr. David Stockman has said that supply-side economics was merely a cover for the trickle-down approach to economic policy— what an older and less elegant generation called the horse-and-sparrow theory: If you feed the horse enough oats, some will pass through to the road for the sparrows. "Recession Economics," New York Review of Books, Volume 29, Number 1 (4 February 1982)
