How Cartoonists Covered the Market Crash

I love editorial cartoons. I collect the ones about the stock market and the economy because they’re like snapshots of the different fears we harbor about investing at every turn. Cartoonists only get excited about drawing market-related stuff when its crashing or there’s an obvious bubble.

In this latest batch, collected from the past week, you’ll see some repeated motifs. The China thing obviously looms the largest – note all the pandas and dragons and fortune cookies. There are also some creative ways to show the bear ascendant and the bull on the run. The best thing about those is that you can always flip it around when the market’s direction turn 😉

Enjoy!
