Sometimes it feels like all we talk about at Planet Money is how the economy is going down the tubes.

On today's show, though, we visit a few people who have been doing well this year. There's a guy with a gold vault. A company that sells off inventories for bankrupt stores. And the king of coconut water.

Ok, so that list doesn't exactly scream economic revival. Maybe 2012 will be better.

Happy new year.
