Rash of finance-pro suicides baffles experts

The financial world has been rattled by a rash of apparent suicides, with some of the best and brightest among the finance workers who have taken their lives since the start of the year.
A majority of the eight suicides of 2014 have been very public demonstrations, which has suicide-prevention experts puzzled.

“Jumping is much less common as a method for suicide in general, so I am struck by the number that have occurred in recent months in this industry,” said Dr. Christine Moutier, chief medical officer of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

Moutier also discounts the location of the act as being the driver behind the reason for the suicide.

“The suicide-research literature doesn’t help very much with the question of why the method of these suicides is so out in the open,” she added.

About a million people a year commit suicide; in many countries that's more than the number of homicides each year.  The rate of suicide is highest in the Baltic States, Russia, and Eastern Asia.  Without some evidence of a causal relationship, these figures are nothing more than coincidence.
