If you feed the horse enough oats, some will pass through to the road for the sparrows.

John Kenneth Galbraith

I am not sure what is trickling down in this recovery.  It is not oats, or wealth.

But I am fairly sure that I know why the recovery is so disjointed and selective.  

It is one of the oldest stories.  It is about the abuse of privilege, of foolish people led in herds shouting slogans crafted by the clever and the unscrupulous, of the treacherous and self-destructive fury of unbridled greed.

It is about the lust for power, the deceptiveness of hubris, the blindness of pride, and the lessons from history that have been carefully and intentionally unlearned.  It is about the madness that brings the fire, in hearts and minds of men.
