Informational film explaining the work of the New York Stock Exchange. The short describes types of stocks, the function of brokers and investors, and how stocks support business and industrial activity across the nation. Howard Thompson called the film "devastatingly original" and praised its "exciting color photography." (2006 The Field Guide to Sponsored Films by Rick Prelinger)
