The Profits of Doom

Recently I did a Twitter poll asking, "How Depressing is the recent market crash?"

250 readers responded. 27.6% said they were "totally bummed" (12.6%)

or moderately depressed (15%.)

51% were indifferent, presumably not invested.

Surprisingly 21.3% were "elated" because they were "short" the market and made a killing.

This raises a classic moral dilemma. Is it immoral to profit from social and economic chaos?
