My ‘trickle down economics’ tweet went crazy viral and here’s a play-by-play


I’ve tweeted over 60,000 times, but I’d never seen anything like this. 

As of this writing, one of my tweets has collected 100,000 likes and over 42,000 retweets, and counting. All in less than 24 hours. 

The tweet is not extraordinary. It’s a simple pictograph, a sort of word illustration, that offers my perspective on one particularly pervasive piece of economic theory.

NYC yellow cab drivers pose for pin-up charity calendar

You have many choices when it comes to purchasing a calendar for the new year. Now there’s another contender: the 2018 New York City Taxi Drivers Calendar.

Described as a “comedic take on the traditional pin-up,” the calendar features the Big Apple’s “most scintillating and good-humored” yellow cab drivers and a portion of its proceeds goes to charity.

A portion of each calendar sale will go to University Settlement, America’s oldest settlement house (1886), based in New York City and serving over 30,000 immigrant and working individuals and families every year with basic services like quality education, housing, recreation and wellness opportunities, and literacy programs.

The calendar is available online for $14.99.
