Trickle-up Poverty, the DarkSide of Voodoo Reaganomics…

There’s a Fake Arabian Nights story, about Aladdin.

Seems he didn’t get the hang of the Genie all that quickly, he had a few mishaps along the way.

He rubs the lamp, tells Genie “Make me as rich as the Shah”

Great big ball of smoke, and a “POOF!” noise…

Aladdin looks around, he’s still in the same place, wearing the same ragged clothes and the same empty money-pouch.

Bewildered, he says “What the hell happened there?”

And the old wino standing next to him says “Damned if I know, two minutes ago I was walking around my Palace and all of a sudden POOF!”
