[qs=Taq]In another thread a while back someone said that it would be sound economic policy for the government to take tax revenue and just dump it out of an airplane onto the population below.[/qs]

How is this different from a tax cut?

Money does not accumulate at the top and stay there. If that were true everyone rich would stay rich. The rich are in all stages of life, from young to old, from wealth accumulation to wealth squandering. They own companies that are on the way up and companies that are on the way down.
