Your smart phone is an example of trickle down economics. If you price your video camera, phone, computer, digital recorder, pager, maps, snail mail, GPS, etc... by past standards (around 1990) that phone would be almost $20,000.

Today's typical smartphone replaces a wide range of equipment one would have purchased back in the early 1990s -- from computers to stereo equipment to cameras to clock radios. And, oh yeah, telephones.
Now, Bret Swanson of TechPolicyDaily.com has crunched some of the pricing behind these replaced items and more, coming up with an estimate as to what it would have cost to put together a high-functioning smartphone in 1991, comparable to today's iPhone: $3.6 million, versus the $100-$300 price tag (depending on deals) incurred when purchased with one of today's mobile plans.

Hmm I'm trying to figure out what you mean, are you saying trickle down economics is the cause for innovation? If so, so then there was none to very little innovation before 1980? No innovation In the 90s? Or from 2009-2016?

Interesting. If you open up a companies financials - a small portion of profits/revenue goes R&D for a majority of companies.

Bosa is going to beat Aldon's sack record!

RE: innovation. Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Ellison, etc... get paid billions to innovate. It pays big time in our economy. Ford invented the assembly line. Carnegi the steel processing technology and railroad stuff, and Leland Stanford founded Stanford University. Innovation comes in all areas, political, scientific, educations and, technical, law, - you pay for innovation. If you don't - then you don't get innovation.

Lol I'm not saying people shouldn't be rich and rewarded for their work. I actually work at an investment bank. Im not for socialism or anything lol. Just not a fan of trickle down economics. You do realize that trickle down economic theory isn't the only capitalistic economic theory right?

And you know that the stock market is mostly based on emotion, you know that right?
7/24-7/26 is my target for this deal getting done.

Not going to stress about this at all until Nick and Deebo are back in the Bay area and TC is starting with no news.

Don't stress about it - it'll happen soon enough.
Still can't believe we were able to draft Nick f**kIN Bosa!
Anyone grab his jersey yet?
I can't find any white away jerseys, will probably have to order a custom.
Thought the '19 jerseys came with a "100" patch in place of the regular NFL patch....hmmmm

Would be willing to bet most of those things come through funding paid for by our taxes via the military or university system, making them trickle up.

Ok, *you* come up with the next innovation, based on all the IP that the Government has in the public domain right now.

Thread getting weird. Let's prevent derailment. Here's a recent gif of Bosa. You can tell he's very self conscious about his short arms by the way he folds them for no reason.
