The brisk business of the JFK assassination

Published on January 25th, 2013 | by Admin


This November marks the 50th anniversary of the assassination of John F. Kennedy, America’s 35th president, and Tomorrow’s Trends has posted an interesting article highlighting some of money the national tragedy is still generating, from movies to books to memorabilia to video games.

As memorabilia continues to be the cottage industry of small business, sales of any items having to do with the murder of Kennedy blossoms and there seem to be new products being introduced every year.

  • The New York Times has introduced a 50th Anniversary coin and stamp collectible set that seems to be enjoying rather brisk sales despite the $299.99 price tag.
  • An anniversary with the 1964 Kennedy half dollar coin is also available for a mere $159.
  • The JFK library in Massachusetts continues to sell t-shirts, coffee mugs, business card holders and cuff links.
