President Donald Trump, in a Tuesday night tweet, called the $900 billion Covid relief bill passed by Congress an unsuitable "disgrace" and urged lawmakers to make a number of changes to the measure, including bigger direct payments to individuals and families.
The president’s tweet, which included a video of him discussing what he considers the bill’s many flaws, came less than 24 hours after the Senate passed the measure.

The UK left the EU in January this year, but on 1st Jan 2021, the transition ends. Due to the government failing to reach a deal with the EU, we're looking at delayed goods (food, medicines, etc), shortages, stock-piling, and higher prices. The lorries are already queuing up to unload their goods, and this is before the majority of the general public gets in on the fun.
On top of that, we have the highest covid 19 death toll in western Europe per capita, and a mutant strain with a higher transmission rate is fucking us even harder, not to mention the economic and social consequences of that.
Today, we released a new study on intergenerational comparisons of household economic well-being. It compares economic well-being from a macroeconomic accounts perspective, as measured by net saving and net worth. These are measured when the household’s major income earner reaches the same point in the life cycle for each generation.

I realize this is more of an economic discussion, but it’s undoubtedly rooted in politics. What are some benefits and examples of each?
Do we have concrete examples of what lower class individuals do with an injection of cash and capital or with tax breaks? Are there concrete examples of how trickle down economics have succeeded in their intended efforts?
If we were to implement more “trickle up” type policies, what would be some examples and how would we implement them?
The working-paper published yesterday by researchers at the London School of Economics, looked at times in the last 50 years when New Zealand and 17 other Western nations lowered their rates of taxes on their wealthiest individuals. The study found this had no effect on economic growth and unemployment, but increased inequality. A significant finding given right-wing parties in New Zealand and other Western countries have commonly claimed over this time period that cutting taxes for the wealthy would be a significant economic boost.
