Good question. Actually, history has shown that when wealthy people get tax cuts, they (wisely) tend to save that money and/or use it to pay down debt. That may benefit them personally, but it does nothing to create jobs, or help the economy as a whole... More

I would say both, but probably more in the US, and not for patriotic reasons, but because the merchandise is cheaper.
