Subtitle: The myth of inequality-driven economic growth and how to achieve real prosperity for all
In this piece just published to Medium, I take on the myth of trickle-down economics in the attempt to kill and burn it with fire. Inequality must be reduced for our economy to grow in a way that benefits us all.
Thank you so much to all my patrons who allow me to take the weeks required to research and craft articles like this. I can't properly express how fulfilling it is and how lucky I am to be free to write stuff like this and share it with everyone who wishes to read it.

Traveling around the world to advocate for basic income costs money above and beyond a basic income. For everyone who selects this reward level, $10 of your monthly pledge will not count toward my basic income and will instead be added to my savings account set aside specifically for traveling to and taking part in important conferences.
Pledge $50 or more per month
You get your choice of t-shirts I've created to wear your support for basic income. In addition to the above rewards, once activated, I will supply one basic income t-shirt per month to another patron randomly selected each month from the rest of my patrons so that we can all express our support for a basic income guarantee with our amazing sense of fashion.
