Put all people committed of un-social behaviour into the Stocks! This will create a demand for stocks, which should help to increase the stock market.

Talking about hanging; I remember asking a hunting friend of mine who liked game, if he hung his pheasants.
He said, “No, I just shoot the buggers!”
