The Year in Slideshows
Throughout 2008 we here at CNBC.com have been putting together slideshows about the serious ... jobs, housing, investment ... and the fun ... fashion, gifts, liquor ... for your information and pleasure. Now at year's end we thought we'd go over what were the ten most popular slideshows visited by our readers. And naturally we decided to do it ... in a slideshow!
It seems fitting that kicking off our top slideshow list would be ... bankruptcy. Lehman Brothers, after all, was a major headline of the year. And at $639 billion, it dwarfed all the rest, as our slideshow on the Top Ten Chaper 11 Bankruptcies pointed out. The 10th largest here was only $25.2 billion ... barely enough for an auto bailout these days, right?
Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim is presented annually in Miami Beach. The invitation-only event gives national and international media a look at designers' swimwear and resort collections for the upcoming year. Naturally, we wanted our readers to see what was coming for the fashion world.
Highest Paying Jobs
It's a no-brainer why this slideshow was popular. The list varies from doctors to airplane pilots, but those looking for high pay may want to look in the medical field, which dominates the list. But even if the year wasn't so bad for employment, readers would have clicked into this one. Who wouldn't want to see what job pays $184,340 per year on average? (Hint: Sleep on it).
Hardest Jobs to Fill
Despite the shaky job market, employers are still having a tough time filling some positions. Naturally, jobs that required special skills and knowledge topped the list. But there is demand for some basic labor, too.
This slideshow went hand in hand with the main news of the year: The seizure of the U.S. credit and banking system. This year alone, 25 banks have gone under.
More than one million homes in America went into foreclosure in 2008 ... and the rich and famous were not immune. Celebrities ranging from athletes to entertainers saw their homes go into foreclosure. CNBC.com took a look.
This list helped readers determine if they were likely to see a pink slip or not. No surprise, housing- and finance-related work dominated the list. But new hires in all industries need to worry, too.
This was a slideshow done especially for Oktoberfest, featuring some light-hearted photos. And the United States is NOT the winner.
It's a fun season. And not just for kids. An estimated 51.8 million adults are belived to have sported some sort of costume for the fright night. We took a look at some of those get ups. And some were a little, ahem, edgy.
Our most visited slideshow of the year. No wonder. In the big-money world of prostitution, sometimes the names that get caught up in scandals are a big surprise. They include political figures, billionaires, CEOs, all-star athletes and celebrities.
