The Darwin Awards of Finance is holding a contest to find the American investor who lost the most during the recession, reports The Economist; they want the “financial world’s equivalent of Paris Hilton” (named worst actress at this year’s Golden Raspberries). First prize is a trip to Rome, “the last great empire to collapse under a mountain of debt, a devalued currency, and out-of-control spending.” Second- and third-place finishers win trips to Iceland.
