I’ve seen your work all over the internet, but it’s only today that I found the D&D thread and this blog – and I’ve got to say, I’m honestly shocked that the Economist isn’t all over you already (incidentally, ‘Trickle-Down Economics’ is actually my favourite editorial cartoon ever). Anyway, I saw on SA that you’re currently syndicated to a bunch of student papers in the States and I was wondering if New Zealand could hop on the bandwagon too.
We can’t really offer you anything in the way of money unfortunately, but I guess it’s another feather in your cap or bullet-point in your CV or whatever. Plus we’d be sure to credit you and send clippings of any work we publish. Keen?

A perfect example of Bush’s idea of trickle down economics. The (AHEM) “riches” will just trickle to the less fortunate!
Terrence / dead-on take for trickle-down economics / nice work!
John Kenneth Galbraith said: “Trickle-down approach to economic policy—that an older and less elegant generation called the horse-and-sparrow theory: ‘If you feed the horse enough oats, some will pass through to the road for the sparrows.'”
The sparrows, and the ordinary people, get mostly shit.
