JACK: The stock market; this is where you can go buy part of a company and hope the value of that company goes up so your part is worth more, but it’s a big risk. Predicting the future is hard. Even the most educated and well-researched people who spend their whole life focusing on finance get it wrong a large part of the time. Some think they have it all figured out though, like Gordon Gekko in the 1987 film Wall Street. Here’s a clip from the film.
