Reminds me of the time in Grade 10 business class (definitely in the top 3 stupidest classes in my school experience) when we, on the last day, watched Wall Street, as to learn about business ethics, but we ran out of time and the class was dismissed only just as Charlie Sheen was about to get arrested.

Alright, maybe I lied, and we watched until he encountered the police, and was obviously about to get arrested, but still it's a funny scenario to think about.

There is no evidence that anyone leapt to their death because of the market crash, although several did shoot themselves. One man decided to end his misery by leaving his gas stove on and then taking a long nap. And then there was the guy who had a heart attack at his broker's office watching the dropping numbers on the ticker tape. The one person reported to jump from an upper floor of the Plaza Hotel in New York City, did so several days before the market tumbled. Will Rogers, the great humorist, picked up on it and included the "jumping out of windows" in his routine for a number of years, and so the legend.

There are royalties issues. Photographers would want recompense.

so do they get recompense for all the above pics from a year ago (and longer ago elsewhere obv) which are still live and linkable?

CharlieNo4, Friday, 10 October 2008 11:30 (ten years ago) Permalink

It's a bit of a shadowy area. I think, to be honest, a lot of those pics have gone up under agreements that probably don't allow them to be available in perpetuity. But the web's frontier country for intellectual property. It's all a bit hard to control and results in arguments between the various parties about digital-reuse clauses in contracts. Similar problems with text. Big chunks of pre-web newspaper archives have been pulled because fears of lawsuits by freelancers.

Matt DC, Friday, 10 October 2008 11:44 (ten years ago) Permalink

the copy says, more or less:

Top bankers listen and respond to savers

Where would my money be safe?
What shall I do with my shares?
Ask the experts on the phone at 1pm.

so they're smiling because the newspaper is giving them a load of cash to placate its readers, presumably.

Q: Do you own stock?

A: I have never owned a share of stock in my life. I do not eat my own cooking. Funny thing about money. If I started to worry about my own profit and loss, I would be less concentrated on my customers’ well-being.

And I also have two children in college, so I don’t have any money to buy stocks.
