Me VS the NYSE

As a good citizen I am very concerned about the economy and doing my share. And not to be selfish but I am concerned about the welfare of my family. Now, Brian and I are a little different when it comes to our views on making/saving/spending money. Brian is a big fan of the first two of those items, I lean a little towards item #3. But I am pretty sure I have come up with a foolproof idea of how to beat the stock market and keep my families finances in place.
1) Let's say Brian wants to invest $1,000 in the market. If the market or Brian's stock of choice goes down, he loses money. He is unhappy and I am empty-handed.
2) If Brian would just give me $200 I could buy myself something AWESOME, keep the economy going and Brian would still be $800.00 ahead. This is what I call a win/win situation.
Now all I need to do is score an interview with Brian's Money Honey Becky Quick from CNBC so I can officially go on the record with my plan!
