Recently, the film The Wolf of Wall Street depicted the life of Jordan Belfort, the real stock broker in the 1980's. This film shows yuppies as drug obsessed, money obsessed and material objects obsessed. Perhaps the most unsurprising representation of these people were re-enacted in The Wolf of Wall Street to reinstate the idea of how yuppies operated in the 1980s, giving a new face of the Yuppie to a new generation.

Jordan Belfort- the real Wolf of Wall StreetJordan Belfort wrote two books on his life as a broker and frauder, The Wolf of Wall Street, and Catching the Wolf of Wall Street. Accurately describing the details of all his fraudulent activity. He stole around $200 million of stock owners money by stock fraud in his mid twenties to mid thirties. Holding the definition of Yuppie to heart, Belfort managed to create a successful (illegal) business in his young age that had everyone in awe.References
