It’s almost Halloween, and Forbes has released its annual list of Top-Earning Dead Celebrities.  I won’t give away the list here, but I will note a few observations.  First, there are a few intriguing new entries on the list.  Sometimes, it seems, what’s bad for the person is good for business.  Just ask Michael Jackson.  Second, a few former perennial entries have dropped off the list.  Third, even in a “down” economy, the claimed earnings of those on the list appear to increase almost every year, sometimes substantially.  Certainly the interest in, and thus market for, deceased famous personalities, is not waning.  Here is a link to the Forbes list:
