Ticker Tape
22 March 2014 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

John Sutherland was the go-to producer in the 1950s for industrial cartoons about how the American economic system worked. Although your appreciation of his work may vary according to whatever your political position is, he offered amusing vignettes in support of then-standard pro-capitalist theory. So when the New York Stock Exchange decided to produce a film to explain how they worked, they went to Mr. Sutherland.

Unfortunately, this cartoon, while produced with Mr. Sutherland's usual attention to details, is dryer and less interesting than his other efforts. It is much more purely a message film than his usual efforts and no terribly engaging.
