I once worked on some office renovations across the street from the Board of Trade. It was fascinating to look across, into the windows, and see a whole societal space organized by jacket color. It was like a view into Huxley’s “Brave New World.”

They ate in different areas, worked on different floors, gathered in groups together. My coworkers and I often commented on it, and on what a bizarre view that it made.

Somehow I doubt that it was either Alphas or Betas that put up this sign, but I’d bet they gave an order to take it down. Still, it’s telling that the (likely) gold-jacketed plebes that posted this up think that they actually are in the 1%.
