an unoffical term, used to describe the economic policy of President Barack Obama.

Obama, being a Democrat, thinks that economic policy should NOT make the rich richer while making the poor poorer. He is smart enough to realize trickle-down economics is absurd. If you strengthen the working class, then all people will benefit. Obama thinks the 90% of the population that is not rich is more important than the 10% who are rich.
Obama-nomics is the fundamental opposite of Reaganomics.

A static economic state in the U.S., where unemployment remains high, gross domestic product remains below a normal median curve, the treasury continues to deflate the dollar by printing more money and President Obama continues to be an anti capitalist in his economic approach.
Obamanomics - During the Obama administration, major manufacturing corporations were taken over by the federal government, banks and large investment firms were given billions of taxpayer dollars and jobs were lost, causing increased unemployment benefits claims. President Obama's approach to cure the situation was to increase spending, borrow more money via treasury bonds, printing more money, reducing the value of the dollar and continue to blame President George W. Bush for the economic downturn.

When a individual says one thing and does another. Making Americans Jobless. Taking away freedom. Trying to change the Constitution. Leaves Office worse than when he took office. A socialist in demacratic clothing. a unemployment rate in the Multi Millions.
Obama is the perfect example. Also see Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter. Obamanomics the use of lies for future losses.

"Trickle up poverty". Refers to the economic policies promoted by United States President Barack Obama during his first four months of real experience in US Government. The four pillars of Obama's economic policy are:

1) Increase the growth of government spending,
2) decrease income by increasing tax rates,
3) increase government regulation of the people and economy,
4) increase control of the money supply to increase inflation.
I just lost my job, no thanks to Obamanomics.

The economic practice of spending US taxpayer money to nationalize private business with intentions of creating a socialist society. This is the polar opposite of Bushinomics (Capitalism run awry).
Obamanomics has been used in The United Socialist States of America to create wonderful programs like socialized health care. The government did such a wonderful job with Social Security, why not hand over medical care, retirement, and enjoy the bread lines created for the well being of American citizens.

Penalizing producers and borrowing money to pay back money you already owe.
In a classic example of obamanomics, Michelle obtained new credit cards to help pay on her maxed out older ones.

The "soon to become popular" term that will come to represent President Elect, Barak Obama's failed, socialist-influenced economic plan.
"let me get this straight. The more financially successful I become, the more money the government will take from me? And, MY money will be used to fund idealistic, social welfare programs, which have already been proven miserable failures in every country in which they've been implemented? Welcome to the wonderful world of Obamanomics!"
