Parents and non-parents alike should quake in fear at the methods in which our young people are being taught in school, both public and private. In the public school systems, we see all children learning in conformity with the “lowest common denominator,” while in private schools, the children are brainwashed with the “community service” mantra and all other forms of political correctness. What is a capitalist parent to do?
Try going to your local Target and picking up, for less than 50 bucks, a copy of the CD-ROM “Roller Coaster Tycoon.” [I found it at Amazon for less than $6: Roller Coaster Tycoon.] This innocent-looking child’s game will provide all of the basic training in economics, marketing, and business management you could hope for in freshman-level college courses. The only difference is that this format makes learning these subjects fun, intuitive, and easy to understand.
