Is Wall Street a Bull or a Sheep?  An art critic's view of the market and its implication for two famous Wall Street sculptures

Discussion created by Jose Vazquez on Apr 15, 2017

A wonderfully funny, relevant, and insightful opinion on markets by New York Magazine art critic Jerry Saltz, responding to NPR 's question: should the sculpture of a fearless girl in Wall Street be in front of behind the iconic bull's market sculpture?  

 

The audio of the interview is just a few minutes long, so you can play it for students during class. But, it may be even better to serve as an assignment, perhaps with the following discussion question:

 

Do you agree or disagree with Jerry Saltz that markets are better represented by a sheep rather than a bull?  Please explain.
