How to make money in the stock market

I’ve thought of a sure fire way to make money in a dubious looking stock market. If this ILX thread is any indication, there’s a growing need for stock photos of anxious and desperate stock exchange traders. Imagine an entire disc of photos like these:

Add in some generically important looking graphics of downturned arrows and shrinking bar graphs, all with liberal amounts of blood red ink, and you’ve got a best seller on your hands! Every news web site would be in your debt.

Of course the “Desperate Brokers” disc would only be the first volume of an entire stock photo series of 21st century desperation. Volume Two, of course, would be “Mortgage Mania!” and have pictures like these:

I’m calling the entire series FailureFotos. I don’t quite have the time to pursue it, but I encourage any QC readers to run with it. My only price is 10% off the top and a free license to use any of them for album covers.

    You know what makes me happy? Finally selling my house in San Diego and throwing a big chunk of that at my smaller mortgage up here AND having money left over.

    To put in retirement. Very diversified retirement, I might add.

    Disc 3: Shots of downtrodden foreigners doing the jobs Americans used to do, but for pennies a day.

    Disc 4: Retirees at work, in entry-level service jobs.

    Disc 5: The “unrest” DVD, with photos of urban uprisings & the swell in riot police/prison building

    Disc 6: Breadlines/Soup Kitchens/Etc, but pointing towards ironic yuppie havens like Starbucks & the Dry Cleaners. This one’s more for the lighter side of the news. Also includes stock images of kittens in trees.
