Script Details

We all love pop culture.
Film, television, music, books.
What we read, watch and listen to can shape our worldview and give us ideas.
Not all of them good.
But can pop culture affect the way we think about… economics? We believe it has. A lot.
Since 1933, two competing economic theories have shaped our laws and rules.
The first I’ll call “New Deal economics.”
The second I’ll call “Trickle-Down Economics”
Between 1933 and 1981, New Deal Economics was embraced by both parties.
But what is it?
New Deal Economics is the belief that the federal government has an important role to play in mitigating the excesses of capitalism.
These ideas became popular when FDR was president. People trusted the government and empathized with the poor.
Pop culture reflected this.
White working class heroes abounded.
The wealthy didn’t always fare so well.
The wealthy didn’t always fare so well.
Starting in 1965, people began to trust the government less and less.
Prominent intellectuals, economists, corporate lawyers, and businessmen demonized social programs, taxation, and regulations.
The war in Vietnam and the Watergate scandal also had a lot to do with it.
So did a rise in crime rates and a stagnating economy.
