This very old film from 1957 describes how the stock market worked back then. Buying shares of stock meant investing in firms that employ people and produce goods and services. Owners of shares are entitled to any dividends that the company pays and they can also earn a return when the price of a share increases.

 

For discussion:

1. What do you see about investing in 1957 that is the same today?

2. What do you see that is different?
