I grew up during Reaganomics

from Macklemore and Ryan Lewis (Ft. Evan Roman & Macklemore) – A Wake Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Reaganomics refers to the systematic redistribution of wealth upwards (whether intentional or not), based on the assumption that certain tax breaks and monetary policies will cause the wealth of the top 1% to “trickle down” to the lower classes at some point. Hailed by Republicans, and criticized by others, Reaganomics remain a controversial subject in economic circles.
