I think he is pretty much on the button, especially in the current situation. If the economy is way below capacity there is no sense in giving "job creators" more capital, there is nothing productive for them to do with it. There might be an argument for giving the rich more money when an economy is operating below capacity because of a lack of capital, but that is in no way the situation we are facing right now, or a situation we have faced since the dollar became the standard international currency.

Consumers are the driving force behind business, it's strange to me how business has masquerade so long as the driving force of the economy.
