The Short Story of

Drunkenomics
A typical industrial town
Image credit: the_repairman * flickr
                           Worker
               Executive
 Businessman


    Meet our Heroes
and also good ole’ buddies
Image credit: Marty FM * flickr
          They drink and make merry
enjoying their Boys Day Out Party, EVERYDAY!!!
Image credit: Marty FM * flickr
Their daily tab hovers around $100
 which they always share “fairly”
$67     $0         $33




                                              Image credit: Marty FM * flickr
 They split the tab the way they pay taxes
Biz guy pays $67, Exec pays $33 & Worker $0
Image credit: Marty FM * flickr
    and manage to find their way back home
(always with hearty laughter & heavy swagger)
Until One Day …
Image credit: Marty FM * flickr
 When the Barman announces a $20 discount
as a goodwill gesture to his loyal customers
Image credit: Marty FM * flickr
    They decide to split the $20 discount
in the same “ratio” as how they split the tab
$67
       $53
                          $33
                          $27
                                         $0
                                         $0




                                                Image credit: Marty FM * flickr
Biz guy pays $14 less & the Exec pays $6 less
   with the Worker, as usual, paying Zilch
$0




                                          Image credit: Marty FM * flickr
          and walk away
exploring their druken mathematics
Why do I get
only $6 of $20
  discount?

           Why did I get
           nothing of the
           $20 discount ?




Drunken realization
The rich guy got
      50% more than
        what I got !
                           And I got
                         nothing out of
                           the $20 !




   They “zero in” on the anti-hero
( a scape goat can always be found )
You scheming
    thief!
  @#(*&#$(
               You exploiter of
                  the poor!
               @#(*&$@#(*&$




And beat the Biz guy senseless
The next day …
Image credit: The Natural Stones
        Our two friends go to the bar
(the businessman not joining them henceforth)
Image credit: The Natural Stones
      And enjoy their usual rounds
complete with their daily cheer & merry
Image credit: The Natural Stones
When the tab ($67) for the two is presented
                     …
Image credit: The Natural Stones
              THEY GET BUSTED
Their normal contribution of $33 doesn’t even
         cover half the tab anymore
AND THAT   ,
Ladies & Gentlemen,
Boys & Girls,
Journalists & Professors,
IS HOW
OUR TAXATION
AND TAX CUTS
WORK !
People who pay
the highest taxes,
benefit the most
from tax cuts




   Drunkenomics = Drunken + Economics
If you ignore this “drunkenomics” and
attack them for being wealthy,
they might start drinking
overseas where the atmosphere is friendlier
                                 V




  Leaving you permanently short of your tab
Thanks a ton.
