_The Independent_ newspaper in London is running a special competition. Readers are given a list of Japanese stocks to choose from, and 700 million pounds worth of imaginary money (borrowed from an imaginary bank) to spend. The winner is the first person to send his or her bank bankrupt by buying the stocks indicated. The winner receives an all expenses paid trip to Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Borneo, and Frankfurt, where he or she will be greeted at the airport by a reception committee sent there especially for the purpose.
