"...conservatives always divide the world into two sides: efficient business and inefficient bureaucracy. But the conditions and regulations that allow large corporations to function are inherently governmental, and a government that does not represent the interests of working people in the economy will always represent the interests of the wealthy.
The fiction of trickle-down economics comes from the notion that the economy functions as a separate system from government. Unless the GOP can understand that there is simply no such things as a modern economy without a big government, all of its theorizing will be new marketing spins on old policies.”
