This Film from 1958 attempts to teach people how the New York Stock Exchange Works


I cannot be sure, but I think I saw this film in elementary school. I think that because at the very start of this copy of the movie, they show something that is cut off that looks very familiar. Having probably watched the video as a kid and now as an adult, I have to say, I am not at all cut out for a life in the financial world.

I still have no idea how the New York Stock Exchange works. I guess I need a video that explains it to me like I was 5.
