Real Trickle Down Economics

I like Pope Francis

He’s a great guy even if he isn’t Italian, but talk about accumulation of wealth, the Pope reigns at the top of an institution surely in the top 1% of all wealth accumulators in this world. I’d get my house in order, before I began preaching to the world about the inequality of wealth

If I were Pope Mastroianni

The name fits if not the zucchetto. If I were sitting on that treasure chest, having a global network such as the Catholic Church, I’d spend a lot more time, and expend a lot more capital figuring out a way to feed the starving and impoverished Peoples of the world.  

World Social Safety Net

I understand Pope Francis is considering shutting down the IOR (Institute for Religious Work) the Vatican Bank. I have a better idea. Why doesn’t the Vatican become the social safety net for the 168 countries of the world? It could provide assistance to the unable and disabled, single payer healthcare, assistance for the unemployed, and mini-loans to third world country entrepreneurs. Now that would be real trickle down economics.
