anyone thought of buying puts? Care to differentiate them from anteing into the pot? Care to explain how they create wealth? I can see an argument that buying stock in Pfizer helps PFizer pay for the next round of drug development and manufacture, hence creating wealth, but buying the right to make money if the stock value of a company drops seems completely unlinked from creating wealth as BigJon and Shap have been defining it.

"Looters found despoiling the dead were summarily executed by the militia - stood against the nearest wall or pile of debris and shot without the hindrance of a trial. The same brutal justice was delivered to amateur photographers. “Word received from Galveston today indicates that Kodak fiends are being shot down like thieves. Two, it is stated, were killed yesterday while taking pictures of nude female bodies.”
