Abstract: This paper is a further investigation of the trickle-down theory. In addition to using more recent data, we use a methodology that examines some questions not previously addressed in the literature. The results suggest that an increase in wage leads to a more equal income distribution. The findings also indicate that there is no ¡°trickle-down¡± from proprietors¡¯ income and corporate profits to lower income group.
