Like everyone else, Jack Mullowney sees this nation is facing some hard times. Jack would know: he's 91 years old, and has vivid memories of the Great Depression. He shares some of those memories with Dick Gordon, along with one of his favorite stories from his career. Jack worked for the company that came up with the Green Giant advertising campaign. Jack was the one who suggested the giant should become a little more jolly.
Jack now works as a commodities trader - he has no interest in retiring. He says having a brighter attitude would help all of us get through this, and it might even benefit the markets as well.
